Tokyo to Burlington, VT is NOT a typical flight itinerary.
But after a few weeks of international travel, I wanted to start this weekend of R&R right away. Stowe, VT has fresh air, mountain views and cold beer in spades. With a hotel right across the street, I was at the Stowe Jazz Festival without much delay. Just in time to plop down on the grass and settle into some great acts.
You can see a few of the musicians above. Please note, the sheep did not perform at the jazz festival… but they were grazing joyfully in a nearby field and deserved their own portrait photography session.
