The Vermont Apple Pie Company is in Proctorsville, just east of Ludlow. Turn east on Depot St. and look for the nondescript gravel driveway.
This afternoon Brandy and I enjoyed a warm sunny day walking through some of the scenic environs of South Mountain Reservation. One of our favorite spots has always been Hemlock Falls. After the three inches of rain earlier this week, this 35-foot cascade was in fine form.
The biggest of these trees are 3000 years old, saplings when David took down Goliath. How big are they? A better question might be, “how small are you?”
Imagine the biggest tree near you. A really big one, like a 200-year-old oak or an especially wide sycamore. Then take a Ken doll or a Barbie doll and put it down next to it. That’s you next to a giant sequoia.
