Although we are enjoying continued warm summery weather, autumn's culmination is here. Some have noted that the foliage seems muted this year, and there are certainly cool pockets, but even so, the colors are full in many places and there are plenty of sweet spots.
Blueberry Lake is on fire.
The extended late heat saved a lot of gardens and farms, allowing corn, tomatoes and other crops to fully ripen, after June's cool rains delayed sprouting and early growth. Good blossoming in May and a sunny finish has also meant that the apple crop is legendary this year. Be sure to sample some of the harvest.

Things are cooling down slowly though. We got our first frosts this week and there was a little snow at the highest elevations in the Greens, Whites, ADK's and Chic Chocs mountains on last Saturday morning. Snowmaking is scheduled to start in just 26 days.
3rd tee in paradise.
Outdoor adventures are peaking now too, with prime biking, hiking, golf, paddling and other fun ready to rock. We've been trying to squeeze in at least one wander per day, conditions are just too good to let it pass by.
Community Day is almost here. The holiday weekend is full of events, experiences and excitement!
