Our last trip to the lake for the year was completed last weekend. The cottage is all buttoned up for the winter. The weather was in the 50’s and sunny, much nicer than October visits this year. One sign that the year is ending is the location of the sunset. In the summer it sets near Averill Mountain in the north; now it is setting behind Brousseau Mountain to the West. We wish for quiet weather this winter, after all the storms this fall.
