VERMONT New Hampshire 2010
If I've said it once, I've said it a million times...
TRAVEL is the catalyst for my non-scholastic "Theory of a Better Life".
To put it simply - it makes me happy. So, how do you improve on something that makes you happy? You share it with someone! Typically, my wife Anna and I sit down (usually on the plane ride home from the trip we just finished) and contemplate "where are we going next?" After spending a week in gorgeous Alberta Canada (May 2009), Anna said she'd like to see the fall foliage of the North East United States. I think my response may have been "...huh?"
Fast Forward to September 13-17, 2010. We found ourselves in Vermont & New Hampshire.
Together. Smiling, relaxing, enjoying, and celebrating Anna's birthday (Sept 15th) in the North East United States. Perhaps we were a little bit early in the season to capture the fall foliage of the region; but, we were happy.
Reflecting on our 5-Day Getaway, it is difficult to narrate our emotional experience; however, I truly hope that the photography captured throughout this region will translate our story and provide a glimpse of our fall journey.
Whether it was the charmfully preserved character of our home away from home at The Woodstock Inn & Resort www.woodstockinn.com (Woodstock, VT); the beautiful scenic drives through Vermont's Green Mountains, and winding backcountry roads; the non-commercial "small town America" innocence, beauty, and support for the local businesses and farmers; or, the peaceful rivers, calming lakes, inspiring hikes, and breathtaking vistas of New Hampshire's White Mountain National Forest.
This is our VERMONT. This is our New Hampshire. This is our happy.
