That’s a wrap! The season has come to a cold, rainy, and snowy end….but what a year it has been! Adventures, mishaps,wildlife, travel, and great plans in store for next year.
If you have been reading my blog articles, you know that we have ventured further, paddled more, and seen more varied wildlife this year than in past years. As the season comes to a close, we are a bit sad…the boats have their protective coats applied, and are in their storage locations. The canoeing flag is off the deck, and the wooden paddles will soon be on display (since they are works of art) in the living room. Gear has been cleaned and put away until next May.
We will spend the next 6 months snowshoeing,hiking, skijoring, and kicksledding…more winter cabin camping is on the schedule,and we HOPE that this season we will have some actual snow! We can’t canoe during a Vermont winter, so we have our other favorite activities to help us endure.
We have already been bikejoring, and winter hiking ( spikes required) on snow and ice….having started that makes the end of paddling season easier to bear. And on those too cold,long, dark, boring winter weekend days, we ill be planning our itinerary for or Banff trip next fall. That will certainly be some exciting preparation work.
So here is our 2016 Paddling Summary annual video…we tried to highlight some of the wildlife we saw this year. Enjoy!
