Maple Syrup Season is Over

 The Blog Tech and I hit the road early yesterday to go to the last maple syrup festival of the season.

 From what we heard, this was the big one.

 We drove far up into the mountains with much anticipation.

 The area was beautiful though not a sign of Spring could be seen.

 Lots of Amish farms in this area.

 Soon to be a big garden.

 On and on we drove.

 And then we were there.

 Geeze, is this it?

 In this strange little town,  you have to back your car in to park.

It was sort of like a ghost town.

 No car parking at the local bank. Only horse and buggy parking allowed.

 We finally tracked down the festival.

Really?!

 This festival was really packing them in!

 Great choice of food....not. 

 If you paid this guy 13.00, you got a tin mug and unlimited soda all day. I can't imagine who was spending a whole day here.

 An historic house.

 The local beauties.

 A couple of tapped trees.

 And then we headed home.

Sugaring season came in like a lion but went out like a lamb this year for The Blog Tech and me.  We've hung up our proverbial maple boots for the season.  And um, we returned without one maple product.  There were barely any to be seen. Win a few, lose a few!
