Visiting Vermont - Photography

My wife and I enjoyed taking this past week off, vacationing in beautiful Vermont! We visited with family in the Burlington area, staying just down the street from stunning Lake Champlain, the 13th largest lake in the US. Across the water, you can see the Adirondack Mountains rising on the New York shoreline, blue in the sunlight. I have several Photo Sets to share with you all from this trip, but today will focus on my first few days of visiting Vermont.

I meet my wife in California where I grew up, and have wanted to visit her “home” state for many years, but this was the first time we have visited together. As a side note, I have learned that Vermonters are very strict about the rule that you must be born in Vermont to call yourself a Vermonter, hence the quotation marks, but her whole family is from there, which makes it a special place to visit. 

Anyway, we had a fantastic time exploring the gorgeous landscape, taking photographs, climbing to the top of the tallest mountain in Vermont, Mount Mansfield (future Photo Set), traveling up to Canada to see Old Montreal, and eating at several of the fine restaurants located in Burlington. We drove 16 hours and arrived to an overcast sky and misty weather. As the week progressed, the clouds finally broke, the sun appeared, and we enjoyed moderate weather (80s) until the end of our trip!  

So without further ado, let’s get to the photo set: Visiting Vermont!

Final Thoughts

These are just the first of several photo sets that I have of the amazing beauty of the Green Mountain State. Every day we were treated with outstanding sunsets, lovely landscapes, and crisp morning light. I hope that you enjoyed this photo set and will stop by again next week for the photos from our arduous hike of the tallest mountain in Vermont, Mount Mansfield, and the exquisite beauty of the climb.

Until then have a great weekend, start a new artistic activity, and have a fantastic creative day!
