What and where EXACTLY is Vermont's Northeast Kingdom (NEK)?

Here's what Wikipedia says (yep, thought you might like some 'ol VT trivia):

"The Northeast Kingdom is a term used to describe the northeast corner of the U.S. state of Vermont, comprising Essex, Orleans and Caledonia Counties and having a population of 62,438. In Vermont, the written term "NEK" is often used. The term is attributed to the late George D. Aiken, former Governor of Vermont and a U.S. Senator at the time of a 1949 speech, the first recorded use of the term. The area is often referred to by Vermonters simply as "The Kingdom."

Awesome to see the NEK's growing St. J Striders running club listed in the Vermont Sports Magazine Calendar as an "ongoing" running event in Vermont! Weekly Sunday runs throughout the Winter. All ages, children should be accompanied by adults. 2 p.m. St. Johnsbury Academy Field House, St. Johnsbury. Info at Stjrec.com. Yes, even on Superbowl Sunday!
