August brings both the dreamtime of seemingly endless sunny days and a sense of urgency that warm weather fun is fast fleeting. The best way to enjoy summer's sublimity and alleviate the feeling of impending autumn is to spend some time in the Mad River Valley.
One of the highlights of the season, the 15th Annual Vermont Arts Festival lasts all month long with events ranging from live performances and book signings to gallery showings and interactive exhibits. Oh yeah, we consider food and drink to be art too. Mmmmmm.
Check out the famous Taste of the Valley on Monday evening, hosted
at Lincoln Peak. This event commonly sells out, get tickets early!

Early fall color adding to summer's glory.
The first splashes of autumn's glory usually show up a little later than this, but the extra dry conditions of July may have stressed out some trees. Regardless, there is no more recognizable sign of things to come.
We hope to see you soon.
