Mount Snow Oktoberfest
October 2009
Mount Snow is a ski resort in Vermont, but before the ski season starts German beer, food, music and events take over. I am, of course, describing Oktoberfest. They also had an arts & crafts show and scenic ski lift rides to the top of the mountain. Despite rain on Satrday, Sunday turned out to be a very nice cold day. As expected, the Fall foliage was impressive to say the least.

What would a trip to Vermont be without a stop at a covered bridge. It's no Pennsylvania, but Vwemont has plenty of them too.
