On the North Branch of the Winooski River

Last week, I went to Montpelier, Vermont to visit my parents for Christmas. A couple of days into the trip, I went out and walked up and down the North Branch of the Winooski River. It was cold out, especially coming from Texas, but it was well worth it. Here are some of my favorite photos from that excursion.

You can tell that this building was expanded a while back. Notice the variation in the color of the brick.
