Back to Vermont. This was taken near a maple syrup farm. (Maple farm? Syrup-works? Whatever.) It was misleading though, we were expecting some neat touristy thing, but when we got there it was literally just a house with a barn, and apparently they’d dish you out some syrup for cheap. Not… quite what we were looking for. But, on the drive there, I saw this nice little scene. So I took a picture of it. That’s how it works around here.

Barely snuck this one in before the close of business on Friday. Whew. I spent some time over the past couple days going through some of the shots I got on a couple of the quick trips I got to go on last fall, one to New England (for a wedding) and one to Yosemite (was in SF for work). So, here’s one from New England. I think I’ve told the story before: we were only there for about a day and a half, and the weather started out marginal and became horrendous by the time we left. (Turns out a huge Nor’Easter blew through, dropping a bunch of snow and such. Lovely.) Saw enough stuff to convince me that I definitely need to go back some day, but didn’t really get too many great shots while I was there. Oh well, that’s how it goes sometimes.
I’m really not sure where I took this. We basically just drove around the whole time we were there. We stayed in Castleton, which is sort of in the central-west part of the state, and we ended up driving up to Burlington. So this was somewhere in that vicinity. We were there during the first or second weekend in October I think, so definitely past the peak of fall color for that area, but there was still plenty of color to be had. (Would have been great if the weather held out, grrr.) Although, at that time, the color was MUCH more intense further sound, specifically in southern and central New York, so the drive up there was FANTASTIC.
Have a great weekend!
