My husband, a passionate bike rider, decided to ride from Astoria, Oregon to the Atlantic coast. The trip took over two months and gave him a wonderful adventure and great new friends.

I flew out and joined him at Niagara Falls for a couple of days. The bike group left and I rented a car to loosely follow them.

I say loosely because I am forever taken over by my curiosity. That is how I ended up at this cemetery in Bennington, Vermont.

And that is how I came upon the grave of the famous author, Robert Lee Frost.

It’s a beautiful gravestone and includes his other family members. I especially love the sentiment under his wife’s name, “Together wing to wing and oar to oar.”

Many people travel there on purpose. I consider my visit a happy accident.
