Fresh mountain air and scouting for barns -
the perfect medicine for a tension headache.
We spent a quiet weekend at Away, working on little projects around the house -
and of course, just a little exploring.
This week's focal length is 24 mm - which seems to be better suited for me
(with just a little cropping).
This big red barn is attached to the back of the farmhouse -
which is not unusual in Northern New England.
I imagine it makes it easier to tend to the animals during the long winter months.
We were fortunate that mud season has not made the roads too unpassable- yet.
Although, we did hit one rather muddy spot in an area that was just a bit off the beaten path.
When you see quaint villages and beautiful farms such as this one,
it's easy to forget that parts of Vermont are - well - a bit different.
(We're thinking we may have heard dueling banjos in the distance...)
Yeah, it would seem we ventured into an area of hermits (think Unabomber),
and communes (yes - they do still exist).
It's always an adventure.
And with that, I'll leave you with this thought
- which hangs in one of our favorite restaurants.
