Happy Vermonters: A Young Family Finds the Sweet Spot in Stowe

  “I grew up in Vermont and went to college here, but I also spent time traveling around the country and internationally. When it was time to plant some roots, Vermont was a no-brainer—politically, environmentally, recreationally, and culturally. I’m a photographer and Kim works in marketing at Stowe Mountain Resort. In a lot of mountain towns, you can […]

A Winter Trek Through the Notch in Stowe

A Winter Trek Through the Notch in Stowe

Route 108 through Smugglers’ Notch is known as one of the most scenic drives in Vermont, at least between May and October. But when the snow flies, a three-mile section of this scenic, winding road is closed to traffic. That’s not to say that Route 108 between Stowe and Cambridge can’t be explored in the […]

Emily’s Bridge in Stowe looks like any other covered bridge in Vermont. But how the bridge makes people feel is an entirely different story. Officially called Gold Brook Bridge, the one-lane bridge was built in 1844. Over the years, the bridge has become better known as Emily’s Bridge, named after the young woman who is […]

Farewell, Summer

Farewell, Summer

For the first time in a few years, I was able to relax this summer. My days were definitely busy, but much of my time was sweet and carefree. Dave, Phoebe and I kicked off the season in Weston over Memorial Day Weekend, and we’re wrapping it up with a low-key Labor Day Weekend in […]

Stowe Bike Path: Exploring the Great Outdoors

The Stowe Recreation Path is at the top of my to-do list for anyone visiting or living in Vermont.  Whether you’re biking, running, walking your dog or pushing a stroller, the five-mile path is a perfect place to enjoy the outdoors. Mostly flat and level, the Stowe bike path meanders along the West Branch River […]

A Peek Inside Smugglers’ Cave

I have been through Smugglers’ Notch on Route 108 dozens of times, but until last weekend I had never noticed the small cave just beyond the parking area. The cave is located about 60-feet from the scenic road (known as the Notch) that winds through Cambridge and Stowe. If you’re not paying attention, the entrance […]

Farmers’ Markets Open for the Season

Spring fever has officially kicked in. On Sunday I ventured out to my first farmers’ market of the season. I bought a hearty loaf of maple-cinnamon-raisin bread from Elmore Mountain Bread and spent the rest of the morning shopping for local produce, fresh flowers and honey. Farmers’ markets started to grow in popularity in the […]

Gardens and Flowers at Trapp Family Lodge

The gardens at Trapp Family Lodge in Stowe have everything from primrose and geraniums to impatiens and tulips. And of course, there’s Edelweiss. Every summer Dave and I visit the 2,400-acre resort to admire the gardens around the property. Last summer I spent a few hours photographing The Cutting Gardens and Greenhouse, which is located […]
