Reminds me of one of my favorites:

“Acadian driftwood,
Gypsy tailwind
They call my home,
The land of snow
Canadian cold front,
Movin’ in
What a way to ride,
Oh what a way to go”

An Update From Little Pond

The last two days have been remarkably warm. Traces of ice and snow only remain in the coolest and most shaded pockets of the landscape. Where did Winter go?

Adirondack Update

The little snow we had has largely melted. Only the mountains are showing a glint of white. The ground is still soft, unfrozen. Winter is certainly delayed. Abandoned Beaver Pond 2015-12-07 1200pxDecember 7th, 2015

Time Lapse In the High Peaks

We were greeted this morning with clear skies and a killing frost – the first of the season. Since Saturday, leaves have been falling steadily. Shorter days are hastening my pace up Mount Jo. Amazing how one week can change!

Autumn Moving

A chill is in the air this evening. The weather is active.

Throughout the day, mist and fog cloaked the now golden mountains. Only later did the sky begin to open, exposing a breathtaking maple tableau all around.

We are now past “peak”, but some of the best is yet to come. The mild golds and deep oranges of aspen still await. They will stand alone in the gray of late Fall. And the tamarack, the evergreen that breaks the rules, will continue its quest to fairness, morphing from green to yellow and finally dropping every needle – if we’re lucky on early snow.
