Monticello in October, a pictorial essay

Monticello means "little mountain" in Italian. This beautiful residence of one of our most famous Presidents is now a National Historical Landmark. Visiting Monticello is an immersion of the senses into the colors, textures and ideas of Thomas Jefferson's America. His immense intellect, creativity and exploration of the world around him is evident both inside and outside this beautiful home. I wouldn't have been surprised to see him step from around a corner to expostulate on ideas or projects on which he was ruminating or planning.
As visitors we come to get a sense of the beginnings of our country. How did it feel to live and work in the 1700's? We can, for a few hours, walk instead of ride, think instead of watch a monitor, and marvel at life before electricity and computers. We go back in time!
