Ask almost anyone what the prettiest time to be in the Adirondacks is, and they’ll probably say the Fall. The brilliant reds, yellows, oranges and pinks of October are brief, but spectacular. We spend weeks watching them develop, speculating about when they’ll reach their peak and then, it happens. It’s glorious, awe inspiring and almost as soon as it begins, it’s over. Perhaps it wouldn’t be quite as special if it lasted longer. Now, with the trees mostly bare, we settle in for the cold and snow that isn’t far off (and we dream of the summer to come)!
The photos in this post, were taken by Doug, during a walk around camp two weeks ago. We hope you enjoy seeing the familiar landscape of camp, during this spectacular, but fleeting bit of time. And we hope that wherever you are, you have enjoyed, or are enjoying the Fall colors too!
Kate and Doug are certainly thinking about next summer. Recruitment for the 2017 season is well under way and over the past weekend, they held successful open house events in Brooklyn and Westchester county. Similar events are being planned for Manhattan, Boston and other locales, so please give some thought to who you know who should be thinking about a summer at Lincoln, or Whippoorwill this year and put them in touch with us. This is how the NCC family continues to grow and we thank you for sharing us with your friends, neighbors, co-workers and family!
Best wishes from us!
