The One Place In Vermont That Looks Like Something From Middle Earth

If you’ve read or seen the iconic books or films “Lord of the Rings” or “The Hobbit,” you’re probably familiar with the term “Middle Earth.” This imaginary realm created by JRR Tolkien was based upon his childhood growing up in the midlands of England, but in today’s pop culture it is a phrase used to describe being in a very obscure place. If you’re looking to jump into the pages of mythical surroundings, Smuggler’s Notch State Park in Stowe is the place for you!
