Hooray! It’s October, the month when the mountains decide that they’re going to go into their long winter slumber with a paintbox finale that’ll leave us stunned.
Though we’re writing this in the middle of September, there’s every indication that the Leaf Show will be spectacular, making up for all the disappointments that have dogged this strange year.
Though you’ll notice that this issue is noticeably lacking in the showstopping events that usually define this month, perhaps you’ll take a measure of comfort in Brian O’Shea’s tribute to local turtles and the lifestyle choices that they’ve made, choices that have gotten them through crises far greater than this (like the extinction of the dinosaurs?).
Please continue to support our local restaurants and shops and accommodations. Like Brian’s turtles, they’ve been through a lot.
