Aug-tober

While the leaves won't peak for a few more weeks, the current mix of late summer weather and advance fall foliage is a pinnacle all its own. Meandering through the Mad River Valley right now is a treat for the senses, complete with vivid visuals, creaking crickets, autumnal aromas and full flavors.

Summer's Ghosts

The spiritual end of summer is Labor Day, but the ghosts of warm weather, wildflowers and garden harvests are still sneaking around. The rivers, ponds and lakes haven't even gotten super cold yet. Well, they aren't any colder than they normally are. Some of the shady tributaries still feel like snowmelt in the middle of August.

Based on the amount of early foliage we have already and a steady supply of chilly mornings, summer seems to be quickly turning towards autumn in the mountains. We've got frost warnings for tonight and the summits may see their first rime coating since April.

Delicate Flowers

For me, much of this summer has been centered around helping and watching our two daughters grow into big strong girls. These "delicate flowers" prefer their feet in the dirt and faces in the sunshine. Mom is a great role model and they have spent time at Sugarbush adventure camps learning new skills from the women coaches. Even at only 3 and 5 years old, they are tough and capable in ways that continue to amaze us.

Summer Song

Sets of wildflower waves break in the fields, tall grasses are going to seed and precocious foliage accents the hillsides. The golden glow of late summer's song is upon us.

Dog Daze

The middle of summer in the Mad River Valley means long sweet days of fun and sunshine. From late July through the beginning of September, we typically have a nice dry stretch with near perfect temps. This period is often referred to as the dog days, due to the rising of the Dog Star, Sirius, in the night sky.
