New England Road Trip 2018 - Day 7 (10/5/2018) - To Burlington

Following breakfast at the hotel, we checked out and departed around 9:30am.  We made our way westward by some Maine state routes, US-2, I-93, US-2 again, and I-89, finally arriving in the Burlington, VT area.  The drive was pretty scenic, especially in New Hampshire and western Maine.  The reds and yellows of the foliage were picturesque on the hills and mountains as we drove through, though as the driver I did not have much opportunity to take pictures.  The colors turned greener and more muted as we drove though Vermont, though.  We arrived at the Motel 6 in Colchester (just north of Burlington) around 5:30pm.


After checking in and a brief respite in the room, we headed back out to find dinner in Burlington.  We made a stop in Battery Park to check out the view of Lake Champlain before making our way to Istanbul Kebab House, a Turkish & Mediterranean restaurant.  After dinner we drove back to the hotel to call it a night (while dealing with the non-functioning heating system).  As an aside, temperatures had dropped into the low 50s and high 40s (Fahrenheit) over the last day or so.
