|After a couple of colder nights we finally got fall colours on the island. They usually appear a few weeks after the mainland, where nights have been colder earlier. So --- we had to take a hike and a drive into the park today.|
First we walked the boardwalk in the Eagle Hill Bog. This is by far the easiest of all trails as most of it runs high and dry on a wide boardwalk. Only the far end takes a climb up to Eagle Hill, from where we had a grand view of the bog and the coastline. Fall colours were really great – only a stand of tamaracks was yet wearing its green coat.
It sure is a pity that so few visitors are seeing Campobello during the late fall.
A quick look into the Roosevelt Park’s parking lot showed only a few cars. Yet the cottage stays open for another 2 days, while the visitor center is open to the last day of October.
So instead of boring y’all with my ravings… why don’t I just put the pics up for you to see.
