Summertime on the Winooski

by

If you're reading this, you're probably not outside. Too bad — it's a beautiful day. Of course, I'm not out enjoying myself, either. I'm hunched over my desk writing a story for next week's paper. Sigh.

Fortunately, I spent all day yesterday outside, traveling the length of the Winooski River with Charles Fish, author of In the Land of the Wild Onion. His capable narration caused me to view that waterway with new eyes. Here's a shot from the most scenic spot we visited, above the Bolton Dam.

I-89 runs across the bank from where I was standing when I took this picture. I drive past it all the time, and I had no idea this gorge even existed. That's Camel's Hump in the distance.

You can read all about our trip on Wednesday.
