Bellows Falls, VT is a short drive north of Brattleboro, and has much to offer the artistically-minded pedestrian who loves to find hidden treasures in a small town. Keep your eyes open for some smile-worthy bits of creativity on your next visit!
Down by the train tracks, with local street art as a vibrant backdrop, I met Darwin, a 28-year old Navy Veteran, who’s been hitchhiking for 7 years through 49 states. Darwin’s a passionate writer, recording the epic tales of his travels to beautiful lands, as well as the special people he has met along the way. His writings are in his hands, in this photograph of a gentle soul on the move, and one day he hopes to publish them in a collected work. I hope to stumble across it just as I stumbled across him. Godspeed, my friend!
