Colors of Autumn

It seemed like it was a slow start then all at once, the fall colors started to show. We are at peak right now. Soon the reds will go away then more of the orange and then the yellow.  |

This was taken last week at “The Falls”

And this one at Attean Lookout.

And here is one from the lookout looking over Attean Pond during the day.

And then at sunset.

Thank you Karla and Kim for sharing these beautiful photos.

Northern Forest Canoe Trail

 

This group is on their way to Fort Kent on the Northern Forest Canoe Trail.Two of them started in NY, and Brad started in NH.

They chose to stop for a couple nights here in Jackman and dry out before they get on their way again.

Brad met up with Zoe & Oliver (who are from the Netherlands)  going up stream on the Dead River.

Lovely people and We wish them all safe travels.

Want to know more about the NFCT? Here is also a link to a U Tube video of the trail made by another group who stayed with us a few years ago.

Water fun

Today is one of those perfect summer days in Jackman. The skies are clear, sun is warm, no humidity and the waters are calm.   It is a great day to be out on the lake swimming, laying around in a tube, or water skiing.

Or just sit on the deck and watch them ride by

Just look up

If you are out on the ATV or sitting around the campfire, you just have to look up once in awhile and take it all in. You never know what you will see.

Our guest, Kelly D., woke around 3 am one morning and heard the loons calling. When she looked our the window, this is what she saw.

I have no other words to say on this.   Just a perfect moment.
