vermont - poultney - journey to a slate quarry

One day while I was up in Vermont Jon & I had been inside for a good part of the day doing work, but the weather was just too nice to not go outside. So we jumped in the car with no particular destination in mind & went out of town a way we've never been before. On our journey we ended up at a slate quarry. Poultney lies in a slate belt, where slate roofing, tiles, and building blocks are mined and milled. It was pretty incredible to see all the slate & such a big part of the earth carved out...it made us feel quite small. The quarry also had beautiful vistas of the rolling green/yellow/orange/red mountains of Vermont. It was a wonderful unexpected addition to our day.
