An Ode to North Country

 

In the country, there are many different Americas. I recently visited Vermont, just one of the variations on the theme of "USA."

In Vermont, well, the place has veins.  

Steep ski slopes cut down mountainsides- powdery white and elegant.

Rivers- everywhere, racing you.

Spiderwebs of tubing crisscross through the woods. Pulsing with sweet sap that will crystallize into sublime maple, pure.

A state among the 50 that I feel is a beautiful haven.
