A Great Day Trip

I don't know about you, but with the price of gas being what it is I will be making a lot of local day trips this year instead of going away for vacation. Some of them will be in the Mohawk Valley, some outside.

In writing my post the other day about Upstream's Mohawk Valley Blog Cemetery, I got thinking about the Hope Cemetery in Barre, Vermont. It's the only cemetery I have been in, besides Arlington, that I would recommend taking a whole day to go see. Take lots of camera batteries with you. Most of the gravestones are sculptures--fantastic works of art by some of the best Italian stone masons to emigrate to America.
