The Path of Life

These remind me of the head sculptures on Easter Island but are made from charred wood, not stone.

Last weekend while taking pictures of covered bridges, I detoured over (or through) one of the bridges to Windsor, VT, the home of the Path of Life Sculpure Garden.

Visitors experience the story of the great circle of life while traveling through sculptures of varying sizes and materials. Inspired by a famous garden in Europe, these eighteen works of art symbolize the journey from birth to death and beyond.Source 

They had a whole band of giant musicians like this drummer but the rest were backlit and not looking especially photogenic.

I would like to have explored more but it was nearing 90 degrees Farenheit and I was in direct sun. I skipped doing the labrynth and a couple of the sculptures.

The brochure has a photo of a group of visitors reclining on these boards.

The garden is located in a 14-acre of field of trails, wildflowers and open spaces on the banks of the Connecticut River. The path is also home to some of a 5+ mile trail network, groomed in the winter for dogsledding, snowshoeing and cross-country skiing.

The above images give you some sense of the labrynth. Maybe next time.

Gardens of Marsh – Billings – Rockefeller National Historical Park

We really enjoyed the gardens at the Marsh – Billings – Rockefeller National Historical Park. Our favorite part was the sailboat sundial. Neither of us had seen anything like this before.

Winter in Woodstock Vermont

Last summer, I stopped in Woodstock, Vermont and made a few photos one evening. They can be seen here (https://milfordstreet.wordpress.com/2014/08/15/by-the-time-i-get-to-woodstock/).

Today, my travels took me back through the town. Here is a winter that is pretty and yet very different.
