We return now to our celebration of the Long Trail on its 100th anniversary, with one of the men who helped secure its future in Vermont.
During his terms in office former Governor Howard Dean worked with legislators to conserve much of the trail. He spoke to VPR’s Mitch Wertlieb by phone from his home in Burlington, where he’s been recovering from hip surgery.
Dean says his first steps on the Long Trail were taken some 40 years ago, before he even moved to Vermont and the experience was unforgettable.
