What’s a Sleeping Lion?

Camel's Hump summit

No, it is not a reference to Wimoweh, the African tune about the lion sleeping in the jungle.

We chose Sleeping Lion for two reasons:

  • its image of unlocking hidden potential;
  • the connection to Vermont’s Camel’s Hump Mountain, which can be seen from almost anywhere in the northern half of Vermont.   When Samuel de Champlain’s explorers came to the region in the 1600s, they call the peak “Lion Couchant,” or sleeping lion.  The summit of Camel’s Hump offers an expansive (and breath-taking) 360-degree view while anchored to solid granite.
