Admissions Counselors Bridget Everly and John Gursky are blogging:.Trees throughout the ADK and the North Country are bursting into brilliance. Yesterday, I watched a doe with her twin fawns munch grass near the gates to Fort Drum. If I hadn’t looked so closely I would have just thought it was three deer congregating. But after closer inspection, the two smaller deer, and only slightly so, still had shadows of their spots; ghostly reminders of how quickly they grow. My dog’s coat is a bit thicker than it was a few weeks ago and, like her, I grabbed the blanket from the foot of my bed this weekend. In Canton, fall likes to trick you with warm sunny days that could help you live in the fantasy world of summer, but the nights cool off quickly enough that you start driving around with a sweatshirt in your car. Finally, an email that open skate is available at the rink. A true harbinger of winter!  Read more from Bridget and John.
