Re: My Vermont "Bucket List" is Growing!!!

15. WESTON PRIORY, WESTON, VT I recently saw a post on a Vermont based instagram about the Weston Priory and it jogged my memory of a past desire to visit there someday. I would love to take a “time out” from my usual whirlwind foliage itinerary and listen to the chants and tour the facility. I have...

50 Shades of GREEN!!!

What a spring delight we are having! Maybe even 100 shades of G R E E N ! So many spring colors surround us now, and the hills are alive with every shade of green imaginable! As I was driving alongside one of our mountain roads, I was awestruck by the variety of colors awarded to us by Mother Nature...

Re: My Vermont "Bucket List" is Growing!!!

Oh geez! :shock: I just found another event on October 5th that I have to try to get to and it is actually part of my bucket list! If you scroll back you will see that Dog Mountain in St. J's has been on my list for quite awhile. Well, lo and behold, I found their Fall Dog Party is the same day as t...

Re: My Vermont "Bucket List" is Growing!!!

Wow! This is going to be an interesting weekend in Brownington! My new VT friend who owns a house in nearby Charleston just asked if I wanted to kayak and/or canoe on the Clyde River if the weather is great. A new experience and I'm always game for anything that is adventurous and out of the norm fo...

Re: Six Month Countdown to Autumn in Vermont 2019!

Hello everyone! As I write this, we are in the low 30's and parts of CT are experiencing frost! It pains me to keep the furnace going! :shock: Yesterday, we were checking out back roads in the NW corner and it was flurrying. The lakes, rivers and streams were extremely high and some flooding was app...

Re: Photog Ed McGuirk in Nature Photographers Network, excellent article: The Colors of Spring – The “Other” Foliage Sea

Hi Ed, I can feel your enthusiasm coming through! We are about 50% leafed out here in northern CT with those mint green leaves showing off! Magnolias were in full bloom by this past weekend and azaleas, cherry blossoms and dogwoods are totally amazing! I had been hiking quite a bit this last week an...

Waterfalls are intense and gushing here in Northern CT! Being part of the natural world is glorious! On to VT soon!

This past weekend we decided to check out a few waterfalls in the NW corner of CT. Insane! With all the snow melt and rain, they were showcasing their finest! I hope to head to VT in May and check out a few once mud season passes a bit. We did not encounter any mud thankfully, on our waterfall hikes...
