Reasons to loVermont

This blog is for anyone who calls Vermont their home.

For anyone who’s ever been there and loved it.

For anyone who knows that the ‘t’ is silent, that one area code is enough for us, that billboards do not fly, that imitation brand cheese, ice cream or maple syrup is unacceptable.

And for anyone who feels a soft spot for the good old Green Mountain State.

I’ve decided I’m going to start adding little blurbs to some of my pictures to give some back story and hopefully make them more interesting. 
I posted this one a while back but enhanced the colors a little bit, which may make it seem exaggerated but actually is closer to what it looked like in real life. 
In mid-October of last year Karen (bright green jacket) and I drove up to Mad River Glen to meet up with Jesse (dark green jacket) for a 3-day backpacking trip on Vermont’s Long Trail. Jesse was about halfway done with hiking the entire 273-mile trail from North to South, which runs the entire length of the state of Vermont.
We took the chairlift up to Stark’s Nest Cabin where we would stay the night - enjoying the peak season Vermont foliage on the way up.
We woke the next day, much to our surprise, to a think blanket of snow outside. Realizing it was not going to melt anytime soon, we made our way onto the trail. As the day went on, the snow down in the valley melted away, but remained on the ridge line. We stopped at the rock outcropping pictured above and took in the scenery - a natural gradient made possible by Vermont’s famously fickle weather.

Most breweries per capita! I’m so proud ;)
