Christmas in Vermont
This year my family wanted to do something different for the holidays. My brother gets a place in Killington, Vermont for the skiing season every year and he graciously invited us to come stay with him. The scenery was absolutely gorgeous. The snow covered mountains and wooded bridges were so charming. We checked out the skiing resort, the quaint small town Woodstock VT, and hung out at his house by a famous trout stream. We kept the wood-burning fireplace full stocked. As we were driving across New York State into Vermont a billboard read, "Yes, even gas stations are nicer in Vermont." I thought it was pretty funny, but it's seriously true! Christmas night was spent stargazing. The darkness in the woods surrounding the house was free of light pollution so we really had an amazing opportunity to enjoy the winter sky. I had an amazing time with family - old and new.
