With rain in the forecast the next couple of days, the guys thought it was time to take out a few extra boats and save on bailing.  Steve was corralling a flotilla to head down to Hilltop to be taken out

Heading out

How do you pull into Hilltop’s docks with this many boats in tow…  Steve’s secret

With the light steady rain I almost did not take anymore pictures today, but with the colors coming out I decided to take a walk around the resort.  The rainy conditions bring out the bright colors

It is interesting to see the color bleeding into the leaves

wind and rain blowing the leaves off the hill

I love the contrast of the evergreens with the color

More to come as soon as the sun comes out


Headed down to work at Bear Den and brought the camera along to take some color pictures in the bay






Mack Came along for the ride as well and could not resist the lake


I am not sure how he got in this position or what he was thinking beyond getting a drink of water


What are you looking at?  I know what I am doing and the water here tastes better than the easier to reach water by the shoreline


Which way do I go farther out or to shore


Yikes was that a Muskie rubbing up next to me.  I am out of here!


Hmm something that smells worse than I do that I can roll in or chew


Really I knew what I was doing the entire time


The mists and the color were at the lake this morning.  Enjoy









Now that I have tortured you with pictures of the awesome color, I do have 2 cabins left for this weekend.  Beef A Rama is this weekend that everyone should experience once in their life.  I hear the pirates are back on the corner by the Belle Isle.  Parade of Beef, Beef Sandwiches, and Craft Fair.

Sunday Winter Park is having Winter Park day with all sorts of family and individual things to do like Nordic Walking Hike Kids Treasure Hike,  Mountain Bike Tour, Hayrides, Games and Races for Kids, CAT Skiing, Nature and Birding Walk.  My favorite Bad Bones BBQ will be there as well along with the Timberline String Band and Leinenkugels Beer.  Does it get better than this?
