Patches of sun peek out from the rain clouds and shine down on the tops of the trees. Red, orange, yellow, green, and purple colored leaves illuminate as the sun rays pass over them. Temperatures flucuate from 60 degrees to 50 degrees and cold rain showers pass by; fall has officially arrived at Loon Mountain.
The smell of apple crisp baking in the oven, driving my big wheel through the massive leaf pile my Dad put in the front yard, playing soccer, the crisp cool air, and carving pumpkins are just a few of my favorite memories of the fall growing up as a kid. Don’t get me wrong, I still like jumping in leaf piles but now the fall has a different meaning; winter is right around the corner.
At Loon Mountain we celebrate the fall with beer, German music, and brats at our annual Oktoberfest over Columbus Day Weekend. This year, we will have a few new activities so be sure to check out our website for detailed information. Continuing in the fall festivities, we added two new events to our calendar; the 1st Annual Monster Mud Run and the Halloween Monster Bash in the Bunyan Room. Both events take place on Oct. 29th so be sure to mark your calendars!
Until the snow starts to fly, enjoy the crisp cool air, the smell of applie crisp baking, and leaf piles. We’ll see you soon!
