Fall Colours Of Campobello

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 their 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.
