    H. N. Williams: A Little Bit of Everything at this Vermont General Store

    The H. N. Williams Store looks like an old Vermont barn along Route 30 in Dorset. The building's siding is a bit dusty and weathered; the front door creaky and free of any fancy signage. I've driven by the store hundreds of times over the...

    Leaf-Peeping as a Local in the Mad River Valley

    Dave, Phoebe and I took a ride to Vermont's Mad River Valley on Saturday. We hadn't done much leaf-peeping this fall, so we were looking forward to enjoying some foliage over the weekend. We traveled south on Route 100 and meandered along some back roads in...

    In July, Dave and I welcomed our daughter Phoebe into the world. We are so delighted to have her here with us, and we feel incredibly blessed. As many of you know, being able to have a child was a challenge for us. Needless to...

    The Light and Air of Fall

    Lately I've been spending a lot of time outdoors in Vermont with my camera. This photo of a classic Chevy truck in Shelburne is one of my favorites from the fall season. The colorful leaves are always a highlight of autumn in Vermont, but I also...

  • Autumn in Burlington
    Autumn in Burlington

    Our home in Burlington has a beautiful maple tree in the front yard. I love the contrast between the tree's yellow leaves and dark branches. In the right light, it almost looks like butterscotch and chocolate. Most of northern Vermont and the higher elevations are past...

  • The Early Show at Shelburne Orchards
    The Early Show at Shelburne Orchards

    Shelburne Orchards was featured on The CBS Early Show last week, and I was fortunate enough to be at the orchard for the live segment with weather anchor Dave Price. Every fall, a producer from the show contacts me for location suggestions in Vermont, and this...

    Bristol Pond is one of those perfect places to spend a sunny, fall afternoon. The pond, also known as Winona Lake, is a beautiful spot for canoeing, kayaking and fishing. The Hogback Mountains sit along the eastern border of Bristol Pond, making the area especially scenic....
