Christmas in Vermont

Mr. SP and I have been in Vermont for almost a week enjoying a most excellent vacation.  Today we make the long, 12+ hour journey home.  I thought I’d share some scenes from Vermont with you. 

The first set of pictures were taken in the Woodstock area.  If I see a covered bridge, I love to take a picture if I have the opportunity.  Wouldn’t this make a pretty Christmas card?

The house below is on the road that leads to the Suicide Six ski area.  We didn’t ski there but we did go there twice to look around. 

If you stand in the covered bridge below, this is the view.  Lovely, isn’t it?

This covered bridge is just off the green in the town of Woodstock. 

This pretty frozen creek is somewhere near Sugarbush Farm.  They make cheese there and also process maple syrup. 

The pictures below were taken on a cold post breakfast walk through Woodstock.  The town is loaded with beautiful homes.

After spending the weekend in Woodstock, we moved on to Okemo for a few days of skiing.  The skiing was great, but it was very cold and windy.  On a clear day you get quite a view from the top of the mountain.

Eight degrees without the windchill means that every bit of skin must be covered.  I am so glad that we bought helmets last year.  They are so warm and I feel much safer skiing with it.

It snowed while we skied on Wednesday.  The visibility was very low on the mountain top.

I guess it’s always a good thing when you don’t want to come home from a vacation.  We both could easily stay much longer in Vermont but home we must go!   We’ll both miss evenings in front of a roaring fire like this one at the Woodstock Inn.
Tomorrow I’ll be busy with unpacking, grocery shopping, and cooking for Christmas Eve.  I hope that I accomplished all of my other Christmas preparations before I left for our trip.  If I didn’t, I think it is too late.
I wish each and every one of you a very Merry Christmas!

    “Vermont…must be beautiful this time of year with all that snow.” Name that movie! 😉

    BEAUTIFUL photos, Paula. I’ve never been to Vermont, but I’d love to go. Maybe I’ll have to convince T. 🙂

    Wow, Paula! It looks like a Christmas card! Wishing you a wonderful Christmas with your family filled with peace, love and joy!…hugs…Debbie

  7. Well darn Paula, I was out there last week too, I’m sure Mr. SP wouldn’t have minded me tagging along (roll eyes here). A winter vacation in Vermont sounds perfect to me. Too bad the weather wasn’t just a little more cooperative. The picture of the church just struck my heart, all of them are just lovely.
