It's November in Vermont, and as Strafford-native and increasingly popular singer-songwriter Noah Kahan would say, "It's the Season of the Sticks."

The time between the last leaves falling and the first real snowfall, Stick Season is when the iconic Green Mountains are fully visible in all their stark, raw beauty. While not as colorful as summer and fall or cozy as winter, it's still a great time to visit Greater Burlington. 

To help get us in the mood, acclaimed landscape photographer Caleb Kenna has created this stunning visual ode to Vermont's forgotten season, going aerial to capture the Burlington, Vermont area as few have seen it. From the Appalachian Gap to Battery Park, Caleb's photos show how beautiful Vermont is even at this time of great change and transition.
