Skiing in Okemo, Vermont, USA
Okemo is an awesome hill station. Great place to ski.

Skis are used in conjunction with special boots that connect to the ski with use of a binding. It is characterized by fixed-heel bindings that attach at both the toe and the heel of the skier's boot.
About 32% are novice and for beginners like us there were classes. I was thrilled to see so many children learning skiing. My friends and I had the pleasure of having Mr. Craig be our instructor in a ski class. He is a good and patient teacher. I learned how to stand and walk with ski and much more from him. He helped me get up whenever I fell down - which was many times :) The shoes and the gear were taken on rent.
Picturesque return journey via Northampton, Massachusetts, where we could eat lunch; many Indian restaurants offer vegetarian food.

A Vacation from YouTube!
We took off on a family vacation and visited some great east coast destinations. First our adventures took us to Vermont, where we visited Charlie's old family homestead and then spent the night in the Homestyle Hostile Bar and Restaurant in Ludlow VT. Then we ventured up to Camps in Harrison Maine on Long Lake where we picked up Kaya from her summer home. After Maine we headed south to Boston where we went to The Mother Church and did a little sight seeing, even grabbed a slice of giant pizza from Supreme Pizza. Our journey led us back through New York and New Jersey where we grabbed lunch and incredible ice cream sundaes from Bischoff's Confectionary in Teaneck New Jersey and visited Liberty State Park to see the Statue of Liberty. After our New England adventures we moved further south and visited the Capital in Washington DC. The kiddos really enjoyed the roof top pool at the Holiday Inn, but the highlight was walking down the national mall and seeing all the monuments, we even saw Donald Trump's house... The White House. Interested in visiting some of these areas? Here's an honest review from a traveling family.

11/19/18: We’re back at the Joseph Downes garage for a nice dusk and cold ride on the glass elevators. I also did a bonus ending to watching the elevator going up to the top floor from the outside of the garage.
