Once It Warms Up, Visit The Robert Frost Farm In Ripton, Vermont For A Perfect Sunny Day Excursion
“Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, And sorry I could not travel both And be one traveler…” is the opening two stanzas of Robert Frost’s beloved and timeless poem, The Road Not Taken. Was that ‘yellow wood’ in Vermont? Some people might not be aware of the fact that Robert Frost had a summer cabin in Ripton, Vermont. For more than 20 years, the legendary poet called these hills and forests in Ripton home during the summer months. Now, you can visit the cabin and grounds where Robert Frost lived and derived much of his inspiration.
