Recommendation: Carpe Adirondack Diem

Adirondack Fall Foliage 9-28-13

“How beautiful the leaves grow old. How full of light and color are their last days.”
John Burroughs

Like many who love the Adirondacks, I am hooked on nature. Even though this obsession with spending time outside is sometimes troublesome,  inconvenient, and even frightening, as in the case of my recent run-in with a bat, I cannot bear to work inside on a beautiful Adirondack day.  Fortunately, I am not the first to feel this call of the wild. As a result, smart people invented Adirondack chairs, decks, and wif-fi, which in turn create the perfect workplace on a gorgeous Adirondack fall day.

The honking of Canada Geese on the lake remind me outdoor living will soon be over for the season. Like their human counterparts, these Canadians are just visiting. The geese stop by, rest, and grab a bite to eat on their way south from Canada to the Chesapeake Bay. The human Canadian visitors stop by and take pictures of the beautiful Adirondack fall foliage. The appearance of both mean winter is coming and it won’t be long until the Adirondack chairs are stored away, so I savor the sunny moment.

Enjoy today’s Adirondack fall foliage view from my office, here on the deck at HQ. I think Burroughs would approve of this time sensitive adaption and recommendation: seize the day, outside.

    I see the beavers are in residence…is this the time of the year when the bats go in residence as well ?

    Yes, they go to sleep for the winter in residence, hanging upside down while dreaming of human blood.
