Poetry in Nature

During our last hike at Marsh-Billings- Rockefeller National Historic Park, I came upon another interesting wood carving along the shores of The Pogue. Someone here at the park is obviously a fan of the Irish poet Seamus Heaney! This line is taken from his… Continue Reading “Poetry in Nature”

Yet Another stunning sunset

We’ve been experienced some remarkable sunsets recently. Heading up my gravel road after work today, the sun was just starting to dip below the horizon. As I’ve said before, this is one of my favorite times to be out walking – so peaceful and… Continue Reading “Yet Another stunning sunset”

Vermont’s Stone Walls

Walking the backroads, hillsides and forests of Vermont, it is inevitable that you will have an encounter with a stone wall! I’ve heard estimates claiming there are over 200,000 miles of stone walls in New England. Many of these stone fences were built in… Continue Reading “Vermont’s Stone Walls”

Winter Seed Pods

Snowy Morning

I woke up early this morning to a dusting of snow. It came down pretty hard for a spell but did not end up sticking to the ground – except in the woods. Since picking up a temporary job for the State of Vermont… Continue Reading “Snowy Morning”
