Fall Colors at NCC!

Posted: October 24, 2011

There may be no more beautiful time of year than when the leaves turn and the whole of the northcountry turns from green, to a dappling of yellow, orange, red and every shade in-between!  It’s no different at camp and while different trees turn at different times, it’s fun to walk around Lincoln and Whippoorwill and see the landscapes we know and love so much, with a different twist.

Whippoorwill is so dominated by pines and hemlocks that much of the camp looks very similar in the Fall, but a fine carpet of needles covers the ground and certain areas of camp really shine.  Here are some shots of the area around the barn and from Birdie beach, taken on a perfect fall day; crisp, cool and sunny!

Lincoln has more deciduous trees, and different parts of camp turn at different times.  These shots were taken on a cloudier day, but sometimes the low light makes the colors “pop” that much more!  A whitetail deer was feeding out at the archery range this day and I was able to sneak up to the field house and watch her for quite a while from around the corner.  I was feeling rather sneaky, but when she finally saw me and bounded off towards the forest, I was surprised to see her fawn bound off too.  It had been just on the other side of the field house, not 15 feet away, but I’d never seen it!

We hope that you’re all enjoying this beautiful season too!  We’ll continue to post some walk-around-camp photos over the course of the year.  Just think, only two more seasons until camp starts up again!
