Here's a glimpse of Middlebury at its best (though this picture hardly does it justice). This is a view from the section of the Trail Around Middlebury (TAM). This part of the TAM skirts the golf couse on the Middlebury College campus. What you can't see from this small shot is that the Green Mountains there in the distance span at least 160 degrees of the horizon from southeast to northwest. That view is awesome and humbling; I often laugh and cry when I see it. It's especially compelling at night with a full moon, or when the ridge line is shrouded by a snowstorm.
