I had the good fortune to visit Stowe, Vermont the last week of September during the kick off of the Leaf Peeper season. Stowe is a 200 year old village nestled in a lovely valley bisected by the Little River. The highest mountain in Vermont, Mount Mansfield and other peaks of the Green Mountains border the village to the west, and the Worcester Range or “Hogback” Mountains rise up to form the eastern border. Although the area is known mostly for winter downhill and cross country skiing, it’s a great destination any time of the year. There are numerous art galleries, annual festivals, hiking trails, and amazing restaurants. Vermont is home to world class chefs who source much of their vegetables, dairy product and meats locally.
The next two pictures were taken at one of my favorite places for art and home furnishings, Stowe Craft and Design.
