The Vermont way to enjoy
life. It's a bird's eye view of the pastoral Connecticut River Valley from a
floating hot air balloon basket. Or driving down a tree-shaded lane in the
midst of autumn, with a palette of brilliant colors marking the foliage. It's
sampling fresh maple syrup, cheddar cheese, jam, and smoked hams - and buying
extra to take home. And it's breathing sharp mountain air while skiing down a
scenic slope or amongst massive pine trees on a cross-country run. Vermont is
also browsing through antique shops before stopping at a cheery inn for a
leisurly lunch. And it's a great deal more!
