---- — Living in the North Country, we are surrounded by natural beauty that can be enjoyed during all four seasons.
Autumn's spectacular display of colorful scenery attracts thousands of visitors each year.
Winter offers frozen waters, long afternoon shadows and snow-capped mountains that sparkle in the sunlight.
Spring, a time for rebirth of color, showcases many varieties of flowers and trees as they begin to bloom.
Summer's warmth gives way to clear, blue skies. The lakes, streams and rivers serve as canvases where kayaking, canoeing, hiking and other outdoor activities can be relished.
