In Vermont “if you don’t like the weather, wait a minute” . This worked well for the three hikers who left Burlington in the rain for Silver Lake. When we got to the trailhead the rain had just stopped. We did the whole hike without a drop of rain. We made our way around or across patches of ice and soon heard the roar of the Falls of Lana. Without leaves on the trees we could see the great cascades of rushing water for some distance. We then turned and went on to Silver Lake which was mostly frozen. We ate lunch there. The sun came out a bit while we were eating and got brighter on the way back down.
