Day 123/Year 2
Sorry for my absence the past few days. I was up in VT leading 15 members of my camera club on a Northeast Kingdom of Vermont photography tour.
Steve Monroe invited us to tour his sugar house and sugar bush. I arranged for a 2 pm tour on Saturday. Steve and his wife and 2 teenage children were so welcoming and accomodating to us. This is a photo of Steve showing us the different grades of syrup that he produces.
After the sugar house tour, we were taken 1/4 mile uphill to his sugar bush. He has 6000 maple tres that are tapped using the line system. The light in the sugar bush was beautiful:
Here's part of our group who hitched a ride up to the sugar bush in the back of Steve's pickup truck:
Here's Diane getting a ride on the four wheeler by Steve's daughter:
I love the way the light was hitting this fern:
Thank you so much to Steve and his entire family. This was he and his wife's 23rd wedding anniversary, and we were so grateful that they gave us some time during their special day. I am looking forward to making some pancakes to go along with the syrup I purchased. :-)
There are many more photos from this weekend's photography trip. Stay tuned......
