Mount Mansfield is the highest mountain in Vermont with a summit that peaks at 4,395 feet above sea level. The summit is located within the town of Underhill in Chittenden County; the ridgeline, including some secondary peaks, extends into the town of Stowe in Lamoille County, and the mountain's flanks also reach into the town of Cambridge.When viewed from the east or west, this mountain has the appearance of a human profile, with distinct forehead, nose, lips, chin, and Adam's apple. These features are most distinct when viewed from the east; unlike most human faces, the chin is the highest point.Mount Mansfield is one of three spots in Vermont where true alpine tundra survives from the Ice Ages. A few acres exist on Camel's Hump and Mount Abraham nearby and to the south, but Mount Mansfield's summit still holds about 200 acres . Wikipedia

Mount Mansfield, Vermont

If you’re a fan of the Laura Ingalls Wilder Little House books, then Rocky Ridge Farm here in Mansfield, Missouri is a destination that should be near and dear to your heart. Rocky Ridge Farm holds such profound significance on Laura’s life. One could say, had it not been for this inspired and pivotal time with Almanzo and Rose at their beloved homestead, we may have never known about her at all. But the fact remains, her writings from the perspective of a pioneer life have created a following around the globe. It’s only fitting that we preserve and cherish the place where the Little House books were written.
