One from the vault – not sure when it was taken.  But now’s a great time of year to wander the backroads and just look around.

Campground’s open!

(And has been for a week or so now . . .  running behind on the announcement.)

Autumn Leaves in the Woods

My personal favorite camping season is here!

The cove’s been humming along this season — and as usual, the internet is neglected as we all play outside.  ‘Tis the season for . . . whitewater.  Tons of it.  This has been one of our wettest seasons on record.

How much whitewater?  You can play around with the water level and flow statistics by visiting here:

What’s going on underneath all this water?  For a lovely video from the Department of Natural Resources, shot just a few miles from the Cove, take a look here:

I love the way they tell you what fish you’re looking at.  One of these years, I’m going to know my river fish.
