Vermont Drive–09-20-2019

I took drive over to VT “just cuz”.  I can stop when I want when I have no destination in mind.  No where to go but “somewhere” can be fun.

I came up on this lake in VT, which was crystal clear and cold.  I snapped a few pictures and drove on back home.

Then I pulled over and snapped one last picture…..

Lille Mountain–09-13-2019

Does this mountain have a name?  I don’t know, I have looked but never really found it. 

This is a favorite walk of mine and I am going to do some night photography up there one of these days!

The walk up to the overlook begins at the old Parent Pond, where as a kid we’d feed the ducks and there was a small bridge.  The bridge is long gone now, but the pond is still there.

‘Nuff said.

From this vantage point you can see what was once called Lille – a small off shoot village of Grand Isle.  It used to boast a store, garages, and a nice sized camp ground with a pool.  I remember the pool!  I remember folks camping out under the huge pines as well.

Then the walk down was pretty as well – the last photo is one of the many ponds on the way up.
