Summer waits for nobody in Vermont. You've got to be ready for the warm fun as soon as it starts, sometimes even before it starts.
See you at BrewGrass!
Case in point, if you were hoping to attend the BrewGrass Festival next weekend, you better already have your tickets, because they sold out yesterday. Mmmmm, beer.
Sugarbush camps are filling up, too. Get in now. Running 6 days week, starting June 23rd.
The days feel so long now, but instead of encouraging idleness, we just try to squeeze in more adventures. Starting a quick bike ride or hike at 7PM is perfectly acceptable. Seize the play.
Sugarbush Golf Club hosted the Junior PGA. Great young golfers!
"The normally reserved crowd is going wild for this young Cinderella who's come out of nowhere."
Hiking on the Long Trail near Lincoln Gap this week.
Mad River Riders' trailwork in Camel's Hump State Forest this week.
This Sunday, June 8th, the Riders are celebrating National Trails Day with an official Groundbreaking for Blueberry Lake Phase 2 Trails from 12-3PM, with free bike and paddleboard demos, and guided hikes/rides.
Starting at 6PM, the Common Man is hosting the Riders' season kickoff party, with tons of good food, beverages and more fun. The silent auction should be sweet, too!
The Mad River Rippers free kids' rides are rolling at Blueberry Lake every Tuesday.
Upper elevation wildflowers are starting to bloom.
Red soldier lichen (Cladonia cristatella) enjoying some sunshine.
Most of us have heard of Tuckerman Ravine, the iconic backcountry bowl on MT Washington. What does this have to do with lichen? The ravine was named for Edward Tuckerman, a botanist who first described Cladonia cristatella. He did most of his collecting on MT Washington, too. Lichen it!
Summer's here. Break out the fun.
The weather forecast for the weekend looks nearly perfect, with dry sunny conditions and highs in the 70's to low 80's. Mmmm, summer. Better be here!
