(Above) Daan Zwick, former 1930s and 40s GMC caretaker at Taft Lodge, has fulfilled a near life-long dream. Since his caretaking days, Daan has dreamed of a hiker footbridge that would span the Winooski River in Bolton and connect the Long Trail through the Winooski River Valley. On Friday, December 12, with his family and bridge crew members to safely guide him, 92-year-old Daan successfully and happily made his way across the footbridge! (Some photos of the crossing.)
