“The mountain stood there to be pointed at.
Pasture ran up the side a little way,
And then there was a wall of trees with trunks;
After that only tops of trees, and cliffs
Imperfectly concealed among the leaves.”

      Looks can be deceiving, it was plenty hot there! Beautiful scenery though…through the haze πŸ™‚ Next time I hope to be able to sit and enjoy the views!

      I enjoyed the view for about 5 minutes! It was so hot and the air was thick with humidity. Unfortunately, there wasn’t much of a sunset to view through all the haze.:( Hoping for some nice clear skies for our next visit at the end of the month!

        This is kind of funny because as soon as I hit ‘reply’, it occurred to me that someone else had made a similar comment to me (about sitting to enjoy a scene) and I remembered I had been far too anxious to move on to the next shot I wanted to take. Unless I’m in front of the computer, I’m not too good at sitting still.

      Thanks! I wish there had been a breeze…it was extremely hot and humid up there! Was hoping to do a bit more exploring but it was too uncomfortable. Next time!

      Thank you Lisa and happy day to you too! A bit hazy in Vermont but heading back soon…hoping for some less humid weather. I was hoping for some sunsets over Lake Champlain…and maybe a view of the moon, but it wasn’t to be.

      Thank you! It is really beautiful there. Unfortunately, it was very humid and hazy during our short trip. Heading back later in the month and hope that the sky is a bit clearer!

    You’re making me miss Vermont even if it can get really hot there. Gorgeous mountains and views and if that first one was taken from a car, you have impressively clean windows. I love the last one too – how the foreground is so clear with the hazy blue mountains and sky in the background. I’m glad you had fun – now get ready for the thunderstorms!

      Thanks Sheila! Actually, my car windows are filthy, don’t know how that pic came out so clear! We did have a few thunderstorms while up there but they certainly didn’t cool things off at all. Hoping the next visit will be a bit less humid.

    Great photos! Would love to be sitting in one of the coloured chairs right now: the weather is dismal where I am 😦 Thanks for liking my blog ‘Dad’s Precious’

      Thank you! Since I posted this, the weather has gone down hill here in the Northeast too 😦 I enjoy your beautiful site and look forward to visiting often!

    Ah, the Northeast really is beautiful. There’s nothing like this here in Southern California, even though I’m staying in a mostly green place in the mountains this week. Beautiful photos!

        I’ll take most of the East Coast over California any day. Even though California has some beautiful places, they are rare and few between. Most of it is either desert or brush landscape, with not much green, especially in the south.

        When I visited there many years ago, I remember loving the coastline from LA up to San Francisco. Amazing views!

    I think we all need to come together at those chairs; a once a year blogger’s meeting place. Normally I’d take the purple one, but the blue one on the end has my name on it… You drew us all right in.
