Last week Patty and I road tripped to the Moosalamoo National Recreation Area to see Vermont foliage. The foliage was spectacular. We got out of the car once, for a short hike around Silver Lake, and missed the trail turn, ending up never reaching water. The walk was a challenge and missing our destination, frustrating, albeit a wonderful day for a walk in the woods.
After time in our back yard - in and around Camel’s Hump state park - I concluded that the beauty near-by is as great as anywhere in the state, maybe anywhere. Isn’t it odd, that we feel we have to travel a distance to get to beauty, when it is in front of our noses?
As I step back from looking for images for OUR BASIN OF RELATIONS, The Art and Science of Living with Water, I am contemplating a project capturing the beauty of and around Camel’s Hump - a highly touted local attraction.
I no doubt will look for interesting horizons and attractive water while on this next journey - these are my photographic magnets.
The Huntington River, in the image above, is part of the Lake Champlain watershed, the focus of OUR BASIN OF RELATIONS. We are in the final stage of publishing OUR BASIN OF RELATIONS - nearly twenty years of imaging. It’s a great venture and I need your help to get it out to the public, with purpose - clean water. Please write a check to CLEAN WATER ADVOCATES, INC. for $100 or more and receive a Contributor’s edition of the inspiring clean water coffee table book!
