Wintergreen Summer Vacation, July 2012
Although I keep separate webpages for our times at Wintergreen, I decided to have a separate page to chronicle our family vaction in the summer of 2012. Although we make it to our condo at Wintergreen for many weekends, its actually pretty rare for us to spend an entire week there; in fact, this vacation may actually be the first time we've done so. We got to visit and experience the resort to a level we never have before, and although we've seen a lot of Wintergreen's 11,000 acres, there were many trails and sights we had never taken the time to see. I think we would all admit it was one of our best vacations ever!
