Vermont 2020

In addition to my usual activities of biking while up in Vermont at the end of August each year, this year I played my various Native American flutes at few places and took some simple videos. My favorties?

Stowe - Sept. 1st and 2nd

Despite the overcast weather during the first few days, I managed to play the flutes at a few spots....

Live Native American Flutes - Sept 1st
At the north end of the Stowe Bike Path, there's a spot by the river where I played my flutes assisted by a Boom Box with tracks.

"Magic Flute" Hike - Sept 2nd
A little music along the trail - Double Native American Flute

Little River - Sept. 3rd

I found a nice spot by the river "seemingly isolated" to play the flutes assisted by boom box tracks. The weather was beautiful and sunny although there were occasional bursts of strong winds. After playing for a few minutes I was interupted with terrible blasts from a vuvuzela across the river! Guess it wasn't such an isolated spot!

Vuvuzela interruption - dang it!

Ferns - Sept. 4th

In one of my favorite places to mountain bike, there's an absolutely beautiful area of fern ground cover in the midst of tall pines—it's a stunning area aptly named "Disneyland". After my improvs in the tunnel, I slogged up the steep hill to play a bit of flute here.
