View of Mount Mansfield, looking east from my canoe in Malletts Bay. At this time of year I have to make an effort to remember weather like this, since much of November and December in the Champlain Valley of Vermont is pretty gray and disgusting, and the days are much too short. But the good news is that Mrs G and I are escaping to the Caribbean soon, to do some snorkeling and beach-walking.
The snow is already starting to pile up in the mountains, and the ski areas have had a couple of feet of snow in the past few days. Stowe and its ski areas are on the far side of Mt Mansfield, about an hour's drive from Burlington.
