How To Find Ephesus in Vermont

I didn't do the shrine justice in my last post, so I wanted to share a few more pictures in the hopes that could get a sense for how peaceful the replica of the shrine was - and how unexpected it was to come upon it in the middle of the Vermont woods!

Then it was time to hit the road once again for Ludlow and the rest of our anniversary weekend!
