getting wood

December 27, 2009

Since we’re burning wood for heat (up the mountain, the filter house has no heat), we’ve been driving the truck in the snow and chucking as much wood as we could.

fall 09 in the woods

November 15, 2009

Since it’s more hospitable than the filter house at this point, and it’s available, we’re borrowing a house in the woods from my mom and her partner. Autumn is a misty, spooky, but pretty time up here.

a wholesome landscape?

Snake Hill Sunset

September 27, 2009

It’s all about sunsets, so here’s snapshots from a recent ride on Snake Hill Road, which I guess is in Walton. It’s hard to tell what town you’re in on these back roads.

East Brook (across the street from the Filter House)

August 20, 2009

The Filter House is across the street from the East Brook. A bit shallow for swimming, it’s incredible for wading, sitting and laying down, and picture-taking on a hot day. This weekend, we alternated gardening in the sun with dips in the East Brook.
