Hiking around Kent Pond, Killington, VT. The sun kept hiding behind clouds and coming out again, creating a dark, gloomy forest alternating with brilliant golden dapples of light.

Thundering Brook Falls, Killington, VT. A pleasant short walk. Panoramic view.

Green mountains, we’ve got ’em: Panoramic view from the ridgeline of Mt. Mansfield, the tallest mountain in Vermont, looking west toward Burlington and Lake Champlain.

The Colchester Causeway, an old railway line converted into a walking and biking trail on Lake Champlain.
