Vermont is beautiful enough from street level, but if you’ve ever had the opportunity to see the Green Mountain State from the sky, all I can say is: wow. In these spectacular aerial photos from
802Aerial you can see the great expanse of the Vermont countryside, bridges and mountains. Here are 12 awesome aerial shots of Vermont and a bonus video exploring Vermont from a bird’s eye view.
1. Bolton Access Road.
The Bolton Access Road is always a wild ride, but the hues of the autumn foliage light the roads on fire with color.
2. Colchester Marina.
Just look at the view from above the Colchester Marina. Spectacular!
3. Waterbury Reservoir.
This majestic place is wonderful for camping, day beaching, picnics, boating and checking out the world from above.
4. Ethan Allen Boat.
This lone boat on the vast lake strikes a powerful image.
5. The Fisher Covered Railroad Bridge.
This covered bridge in Wolcott was built in 1908 and formerly carried the St. Johnsbury and Lamoille County Railroad over the Lamoille River. At some point in its existence, it was threatened with demolition in favor of a steel truss. A pier was built under the bridge, and four steel girders were built to support the bridge's load.
6. Long Trail Suspension Bridge.
This isn't a place to cross if you have a fear of heights, but the view from above is breathtaking - and it technically gets you even higher!
7. Burlington Shipyard.
Whether you're at the shipyard, paddling away on Lake Champlain or enjoying the mountain views from the shore, this is a view that's truly breathtaking.
8. Railroad Bridge.
This slice of heaven with its sparkling water below makes you long to ride the rails through the Vermont countryside.
9. St. Francis Church.
This striking church in Winooski is amazing - both inside and out.
10. Sunset over Burlington.
Sunsets over the mountains are jaw dropping, but this takes sunsets to a new level.
11. Taftsville Covered Bridge.
This view from above shows the Taftsville Covered bridge, which was severely damaged from the Hurricane Irene in August 2011 but managed to stay intact. It remained closed for repairs for two years until September 2013.
12. Burlington Waterfront.
Strong and sturdy, the gorgeous Lake Champlain is full of wonder. Maybe you'll even spot Champ!
