As I left the office last evening, not only was I struck by the Spring-like temperature, but also by the color of the sky, and the rising and almost full moon over Stowe.
A favorite annual Stowe event of mine was held this past weekend, August 12-14. It's a 3-day happening of antique & classic cars on display and on parade in and around Stowe and Lamoille County. Saturday evening is always the best part: Main Street in Stowe is closed between the blinking red light at the intersection of Rt. 100/Mountain Road and School Street, for a night of street dancing, people watching, and car envy. Strollers oooh!-and-aaah! and exclaim over the antiques, which are all parked diagonally on both sides of the street. And, where's the music? Right on the Town Hall steps. Here are 3 of my photos that tell the Stowe story on this night.
Fran and I toured the Dream Home at Stowe Mountain Resort this afternoon. It was designed by architect Paul Robert Rouselle, and built by Brendan O'Reilly, owner of Stowe's Gristmill Builders. The tour price-of-admission benefits Mt. Mansfield Winter Academy.
With the winner's identity having been leaked earlier this week, it felt a bit wierd knowing in whose home we were together with a bunch of strangers, without the new owner who doesn't know any of us. I'm sure you've seen the home on HGTV and an abundance of photos taken by the more than 2,000 visitors who've already toured it.
If you didn't win, I can help you find yours!

Here are 3 iPhone (horizontal) photos I took at the Mountain, from the top of West Run, last week. I took the middle shot first -- you can see how it doesn't convey the reality of Mt. Mansfield's presence. So I shifted left for another shot; then, I shifted right for one more.
Then, I used the iPhone App, Autostitch, to create a panoramic photo. From my iPhone's Camera Roll, I selected the 3 photos above, and pressed "Stitch." In seconds, it produced this panoramic photo:
Season 7: Last day -- and what a beauty it was. We had lunch on "the beach" at our patrol station: hamburgers and hot dogs on our charcoal grill. With that wonderful grilling aroma wafting between our station and the top of the Sensation lift, we were the envy of our guests!
