I love quotes that add meaning to my life. Here are a few to live by:

We can dramatically increase global food availability and environmental sustainability by using more of our crops to feed people directly and less to fatten livestock.
—Jonathan A. Foley, director of the Institute on the Environment, U of MN

Don’t eat anything your great-grandmother wouldn’t recognize as food.
—Michael Pollan

Cooking is at once child’s play and adult joy. And cooking done with care is an act of love.
—Craig Claiborne

People who eat according to the rules of a traditional food culture are generally healthier than those of us eating a modern Western diet of processed food.
—Michael Pollan

A Deviation of Appreciation

Please forgive my deviation from the subject of food…I can’t help but revel in the Vermont-ness of my past two weeks.  Being as this is my first fall in the state, I am obsessed with finding the most fantastic ways to enjoy it.  There is magic in these experiences…I know it.  I wish I could put them in a jar to save for a rainy day!  It’s the making of memories like these that make me feel most alive.

Now…let me preface with the fact that I have an obsession with my mountain bike.  Whenever I am not mountain biking, I wish I was mountain biking; and I have found the mtb mecca in Vermont.  I live a stone’s throw from a plethora of trail systems: Hinesburg Town Forest, Carse Hill, Cochran’s…my first Vermont fall has been defined by my mountain biking experiences.

Last weekend, I went to Hinesburg Town Forest for a ride.  The weather and lighting were beautiful.  Warm orange leaves covered the ground, and the sun passed soft and romantic through the trees.  At the end of my ride, as I was stretching at my car, someone started playing a pan flute in the forest.  A legitimate pan flute!  As I started to drive home, a deer was standing in the middle of road, looking me straight in the eye.  I stopped my car to enjoy the staredown…hoping that when I started to inch forward it would allow me creep closer…no luck…but we shared a moment.  My husband was out of town and I texted him a brief summary.  His response?  “VERMONT”  My answer? “True that!”

The next day I took my first trip to the Northeast Kingdom.  When I first moved to Vermont, Bronwyn would tell me she was going to the NEK, and I wondered at this exotic sounding wonderland.  Now I’ve been, and although not quite my definition of exotic, it is definitely a treat.  The drive is there is full of beautiful countryside and farmland.  My reason for the journey was for the 100 miles of mountain bike trails known as the Kingdom Trails.  I biked til I couldn’t bike anymore…it was, dare I say, “epic!”

With all the adventure and wonder of these experiences, I could not help but share.  I hope you all have enjoyed your fall in whatever way makes you feel most alive.  Share your stories and favorite fall photos in the comments below!

Until next time,

Corrie Austin
