Encounters

Although a cloudy day, the leaves on the trees were absolutely beautiful! Captures the true image of the Fall season in the North Country.

Hiked the beautiful Stone Valley with some families for SLU parent weekend! Perfect weather and some lovely views. Will definitely be going back!

A gorgeous afternoon for a kayak on the Grasse, thanks to SLU’s canoe shack! The first signs of fall are starting to show in the yellowing of leaves. Spotted a few turtles sunning themselves, lots of frogs hanging out on the algae, a few remaining flowers. Followed two belted kingfishers up the river for a while, but they just wouldn’t pose for a good photo. A beautiful day!

Took a lovely afternoon paddle on the little river. Light breeze, few bugs, starting to see some fall color.

Found this neat fungi by the Grasse River right off of Miner St. I identified with the help of iNaturalist and really enjoyed the name chicken-of-the-woods, named not for appearance but taste! Who knew!

At the falls I noticed this limb in the water with these beautiful and unique icicles hanging off from it. The sunlight and water were reflecting from them just gorgeous and it reminded me of a chandelier!

Walking through the woods and came across the site sign of Spring...pussywillows!
