Because I was taking photos last year for the local newspaper, the Montpelier Bridge, I was able to chronicle some of the good, the bad and the crazy that 2021 brought us. Here are a handful of my favorite local photos. Click here for a bigger pictures-of-the-year gallery.
2021 started with the January 6th attack on the Capitol, and the craziness reached all the way to Montpelier (above), where state police patrolled the State House grounds January 17th in case of violent protests from Trump loyalists. No demonstrations materialized, although counter-demonstrators met a few blocks away at City Hall.
