Because I always find weird and quirky places to visit.

The other half of the Old Red Mill building in Jericho, Vermont was what I’d really come to see.

Named after Wilson Bentley, the museum celebrates the life of the first man to ever photograph snowflakes.

We take photographs of everything for granted now, but trust me this was a big deal at the turn of the century.

They even had his original camera.

Exhibits were hard to come by.
