  • The Path to Snow Farm Vineyard

  • Sculptures in Southern Vermont

    A Stone Wall in Ripton

    This stone wall in Ripton at Middlebury College's Bread Loaf School of English always catches my eye. At least once a year I take a leisurely drive along Route 125, a scenic route also known as Middlebury Gap Road. During these drives, I always stop at...
