happy thanksgiving

even if you don't observe this holiday,

a quarry

mostly forgotten now,
but once the source of slate for the roofs of brattleboro.

a place of awe

i've hiked these woods before
but yesterday friends showed me a wondrous spot.
it's so easy to find and yet i'd overlooked it.
thank you mark and patty.

i'll reveal more over the next day or so.
patrick, thanks for signing on

guess he didn't get the memo

about not immersing his car in water

(i've spotted this nifty little craft puttering along the confluence of the west and connecticut rivers several times...but this is the first time i've managed to capture it with my camera.
not a great composition, not a high quality image, but isn't it fun?)

theme day: public transportation

need a lift to one of the towns along the connecticut river valley?
this tiny transport might be a good option
there's also the equally diminutive beeline (sporting a painted bumblebee)
and the holstein-themed 'moo'ver (- ;
but my favorite public transport is amtrak,
a silvery snake winding along the rails of america
