Vermont: Photos from the Green Mountain State

My parents moved to Montpelier, Vermont a while back. It’s a very different place from Dallas, Texas, so it’s always good to fly up there and see the sights. Here are some photos from my most recent trip in the summer of 2011, including pictures of Montpelier, Richmond, Waterbury, as well as Magic Hat Brewery in South Burlington. Here are my favorite photos from that trip:


Montpelier Skyline

Vermont Countryside

Round Church

The Round Church in Richmond. Dating back to 1812, it’s actually a hexadecagon, meaning it has 16 sides.

Red Barn

Red barn along Route 2. There are lot of cool old barns in Vermont, but this is one of my favorites.

Magic Hat

Magic Hat Brewery

Magic Hat Brewery in South Burlington. Awesome beer. Awesome sense of style.

Spiral Staircase

Inside that funky Magic Hat tower is this cool spiral staircase.


Waterbury Depot

The old train depot in Waterbury. It houses a Green Mountain Coffee shop and a still-functional Amtrak platform.

Green Mountain Coffee

Green Mountain Coffee in Waterbury. After years in Texas, I keep wanting to call the town “Whataburger”.
