“The colours of the trees have changed, the landscape palette rearranged” Robert Patinson

Warm temperatures, brilliant sunshine, dark charcoal skies, light winds, no rain falling…all factors that have contributed to a colorful period of fall hiking and paddling. We present an album for your enjoyment, highlighting the brilliant colors of autumn in Vermont !

Griff loves hiking on our local trails networks….

We celebrate the end of September, with a short, but sometimes steep and scrambly, hike to a beautiful vista overlooking the Mad River Valley…..

Edgar and Griff did not quite know what to make of the nest of snakes…thankfully, we have no dangerous snakes in our area!

So now we enter October….our final canoe camping trip is this weekend. Wanna know when it is going to rain?; just check our camping schedule! It has not rained in 8 days, but looks like we’ll be tenting under the drops this weekend! We’ll also be attending the Northern New England Sled Dog Trade Fair. That will get us all psyched up for the upcoming snow sports season!
