What is the phrase I am searching for? … ah yes, it’s “third time’s a charm.” Phew. The stars aligned, the weather was gorgeous, Mother Nature cooperated – and even gave us a brilliant sunset for the concert and Iron Guild performance. Fire, water, rock, music and artistry combined to create my favorite RockFire thus far. Hands down. For those of you who follow the blog, you’ll remember my posts from years past (2012 & 2013.) This year I was interviewed by Eva of Seven Days “Stuck in Vermont” video column, which may shed a bit more light on why I am so passionate about this event. Oh-my-goodness, THANK YOU Eva! See it here.
This year I was focused a little more on trying to be present in the experience rather than to take a billion photographs. So my photo-recap this year were all the things I had missed out on in years past. Iron Guild was the perfect addition to the lineup, and produced some really neat photographs.

There were new pieces by Chris Miller and Heather Richie, and Gampo worked more on his “Spartan Warrior” piece by adding the start of a shield. Pretty neat to see the progression on this natural art gallery. Below, my favorite instrument, the pyrophone. Click here for Jaime’s instagram video of it in action.
At one point it felt as if Jaime and I were the only two in this little fairy world. Just us, some twinkly lights lighting the pathway, and the whale-song of the pyrophone. There were different twinkles throughout the walk, floating ones, twinkles peeking out of stone walls, and even a twinkly colored lantern ending that was straight out of Alice in Wonderland. So, so, so hard to describe other than the words “magical” … and “indescribable!” They’re also quite hard to photograph, and I assure you, these pictures do not do the magic justice.
