Sparrow Farm Road in Montpelier Offers Sweeping Mountain Views

Mountain Views on Sparrow Farm Road in Montpelier

I drove the back roads of Montpelier on my way to work on Friday. The temperature was -2, the sun was out and the sky was icy blue. I love this part of Montpelier, and I need to explore it more often. Sparrow Farm Road, located north of downtown Montpelier, offers some of the best views I’ve seen of Vermont’s Worcester Mountain Range.

It’s been more than a year since I’ve been to this part of Montpelier, and perhaps the first time I’ve visited this area in the winter. Since it was so cold out, I didn’t take as many photos as I had hoped. But when it warms up, even to just 25 degrees or so, I’ll be back.

    My word I just love that view. It’s stunning and calming all at the same time. I know what you mean about the cold weather Erica. Looks like we’re in for a bit of a warm up this week. I hope so!

    Hi Sharon — It really is such an incredible view. Yesterday I heard from a colleague on Facebook who told me she lives on that road. I swear, I would never leave if I had a view like that! Hope you are doing well. Yes, let’s hope for a warm up soon!

    Hi Susan, you’re right — spring will be glorious. I’m really looking forward to it! Hope all is well!

    Love the photo of the red barn, Erica, with the blue sky above and blue snow in the foreground; also those dirty white worn old barn doors and the pristine snow on the roof. Execellent!
