I often say, with regret, that I have lived my entire life in the same little state. But if you had to live your whole life in a little state you would be the luckiest if that state was Vermont. I am reminded of this as I see the tour buses on the road with people from other places here to catch the peak of fall foliage. I’m also reminded of it in the spring when the sap from our maple trees is ‘sugared-off’ into pure Vermont Maple Syrup.
But whether it is fall, winter, spring, or summer Vermont is also known for the small town centers that often have a town green, perhaps a band stand, and frequently a white church with clear windows & a tall steeple. The church steeple below is one of the fancier ones.
