Chasing the Sun

Vermont winters are long and beautiful. We love our new home and apologize for such a long absence from the blog. I felt compelled to create a new post because we had an adventure in the van for the first time since pulling into our new driveway. In the last six months we have gotten jobs, eaten at every restaurant in town many times, fell in love with snowshoeing and made awesome new friends.

About a month ago, in early April, it was still very cold with an approaching snow storm. We were getting a bit stir crazy. Through a series of fortunate events we were given a week off work at the last minute, so we packed the van and headed south just as the snow started to fall. Our first stop was central Pennsylvania to visit Phil’s parents. Then we continued south to Seneca Rocks, WV to rock climb. And finally to Richmond to visit Phil’s brother and do some urban climbing at Manchester Wall.
