The Winter Story Walk™ is Here!

1999 Snowflake BentleyThe Story Walk™ program combines the benefits of physical activity, time outdoors in nature, literacy and family time by taking children's books and posting them, in pieces, along a recreational path or hiking trail. Discover this winter's feature at Mount A: Snowflake Bentley by Jacqueline Briggs Martin and illustrated by Mary Azarian. This book tells the story of Vermont farmer Wilson Bentley, who devoted his life developing a revolutionary technique of micro-photography to capture the intricate details of single flakes of snow.

"The average dairy farmer gets up at dawn because he has to go to work in the cow yard. I get up at darn, too. But it is because I want to find some leaf, hung with dew; or a spider web which the dew has made into the most delicate ropes of pearls ... I take my camera with me, get down on my knees in the wet grass, and photograph these exquisite bits of nature. Because I do this I can show these lovely things to people who never would have seen them without my help. They will get their daily quart of milk, all right. Other farmers will attend to that. But I think I am giving them something which is just as important." - W.A. Bentley

To find this story, begin your walk at the base parking lot (where Mountain Road meets Ring Trail) and follow the pages along the western side of the Ring Trail (left at first fork) to Witch Hazel Trail, and finish near the summit. Enjoy!
