von Trapp Lodge Vermont

While waiting, and waiting, and waiting, for the sun to shine on these beautiful leaves in Vermont, I put on my tourist hat and decided to check out a few sites. One place that drew my interest was the von Trapp Lodge. I'm sure most, if not all of you, have seen the movie "The Sound of Music". The von Trapp family was featured in the movie. They were real people that left Austria during the NAZI occupation and eventually settled in the Green Mountains of Vermont because these mountains reminded them of home. They toured the world six months a year as the singing von Trapp's.
Of course there is much more to the story than that, but my space and your time is limited so if you wish to explore this very interesting family, you can always google them.
Here are a few photos from the Lodge.
