Early morning rain shower welcomed to freshen up the grounds and forest floor after a dry week. Around .25″ of rain. Clearing and sunny day on tap and beautiful weekend in place for the Laddies Loppet mountain bike race weekend!
Consistent rainfall this summer keeping the grounds and woods lush and green. A few signs of fall emerging in the forest including a handful of trees starting to change and acorns starting to fall to the ground as well as other seeds. The next few months some of our favorite months outside the winter season. Overall, the summer has been slightly above precipitation with average temperatures at Maplelag making for great conditions for trail work.
We have been busy on the ski and mountain bike trails mowing/brushing and constantly clearing deadfall and cutting/splitting firewood. A few storms and wind events this summer bringing down the usual amount of trees, no structural damage to any buildings.
The woods are very lush and green and vibrant with wildflowers and an incredible variety of mushrooms.
