Vermont = MUD

Perhaps it has to do with the weather, perhaps with the terrain. Most likely a combination. None-the-less, my experience hiking in the state of Vermont is of MUD, lots of it.
Here is an example of a very small and somewhat dry patch taken while leaving the state. Most were much wider, longer, and wetter...

The Long Trail is older than the Appalachian Trail, and runs from the northern to southern VT border. The AT uses the same trail for 105.2 miles. The Long Trail is the oldest long distance trail in the United States and was built between 1910 and 1030. More info can be seen by clicking on the title to this Blog Post.
