Here are some photos of a long hike I took recently, starting from the very top of the mountain and then headed down into the hollows. These will give you a good sense of why I love Vermont so much and our farm in particular. Hiking is a whole lot better than reading the newspaper these days!
A lovely field of fern.
A new sign and an old one. Some are so old that you can't even make out the words.
Small mushrooms -- it had been a very wet spring.
A great tangled mess, or, a tree!
A small field that needs cutting. I often see deer in this area in the fall.
On the trail
A small culvert under a logging trail.
This flock of wild turkeys hangs out in this area. And, yes, they can fly but not very far.
Blackberry bushes are setting fruit now for the mid-August picking.
A great time for wildflowers.
No, I don't pick the wildflowers. Just take the odd snap or two.
The view from the mountaintop. Beats a crowded beach in July!
