Sunny days are in short supply this time of year. On top of the cloudiness, the leaves are gone and the days are shorter. Sounds enticing, right? Actually, it really is nice. In Vermont we call this “Stick Season,” which takes place between late October and early December.
The stark landscape is particularly beautiful right now as it contrasts with the snow-covered mountains. The higher peaks all have snow right now, including Camel’s Hump, Mount Mansfield, Killington and Jay Peak.
Ski season will be here before you know it (Killington is already open). But in the meantime, I’m going to enjoy this quiet little season.
