Welcome, Spring! For those who enjoy the sweet life, this season is a wonderful time to visit the Lyndon area of Vermont's Northeast Kingdom. Maple sugaring houses billow with steam as sap is boiled down to create nature's natural sweetener, and outdoor enthusiasts will see signs of new life all around us, from the fiddleheads and crocus to birds migrating back north after the long winter.
