Travel Photography: Vermont Fall Foliage

Just got back from visiting family in Waterbury, Vermont.

Post-Irene Vermont is a place on the mend. You won’t be in the state very long before you hear of at least one benefit to help flood victims.

Since I’m an avid walker, the 5k walkathon in Waterbury Center’s Hope Davey Park was like a magnet. I was hoping to meet some local people to walk with, but I didn’t find any on the park’s nature trail. So, I took a solitary walk with camera…
