Backstreets

One of my favorite things to do around here is without a doubt to take a drive, and within the New England area I don’t think there are many spots better than along Route 100. The open lanes and landscapes are just stunning, and they feature both beauty within the moment but also strike up so many thoughts about the history along the scenic lands.

This slice of a backroad near the tiny town of Warren is the kind of road that is just a pleasure to cruise upon and take in the sights and sounds and fresh mountain air.

Morning Magic

Summer mornings in New England have a special quality of light to them especially with the warm days of summertime. I was out exploring a few days ago and came upon this scene of stark contrast between the rising sun and layers of cloud inversions within the valley’s of Vermont. The contrast between the darkness and light was striking and provided a summer scene filled with mood and attitude.
