Maple Open House Weekend in Woodstock

I always find a new sugar house to visit on Vermont's Maple Open House Weekend. This past weekend, John and I went to Sugarbush Farm in Woodstock. Instead of photographing the sugar production, I found this abandoned sugar house. Far in the background you can see the pile of firewood taken from the forest to fire the evaporator.
