Silver Lake is 'One of Creation's Quiet Retreats'

Posted on June 13, 2013 |
By M. Dickey Drysdale

Friday, May 24, was Lennie Waltrip Day at Silver Lake in Leicester, but it came as a surprise to him.

For three months of the year, Lennie is lord of a domain that is the antithesis of the 21st-century world. Silver Lake, a mile-long jewel of the Green Mountains, lies 600 feet above popular Lake Dunmore.
