Stowe is a beautiful village at the feet of mountain Mansfield,the highest mountain in Vermont.
In the winter it becomes a haven to down hill skiers and the village a great place for getting all the necessary equipment,lodging and after ski activities.
We waited for the perfect weather to climb the mountain ,no wind,good visibility and no rain.
There are a few possibilities to climb Mt. Mansfield,by gondola,by hiking from the bottom or taking the truck to a parking lot just 2 miles before the peak-and that was how we did it.
The view was stunning at the top,you could see Canada,NH,Upstate NY all at one glance-what a panorama..
The area also is blessed with waterfalls and we did hike to 3 of them,some are just a short hike from the parking lot and come as a surprise after a turn and some are along a long gorge and the sound of falling waters can be herd from far away.
We have to come in the winter to see it all in white…
