Sailing on Malletts Bay of Lake Champlain, with Mt. Mansfield and neighbors in view.

Hiking on the rocky Sunset Ridge Trail on Mt. Mansfield.

Paddling on a quiet Vermont lake with loons. Just awesome.

Farmers markets! (We may have the most per capita in the nation.)

Cold rivers cool us off on our hottest days.

For many of us snow-crazed individuals, summer is "off season." But if you are going to have an off season, it's tough to beat Vermont.

Here are a few shots of summertime fun that we have in northern Vermont. We'd love to know what you like to do here in the non-snowy months!

In the summer is it all about the mountains? Or do you prefer the lakes and rivers? And what about the festivals and farmers markets?
