The leaves have “popped” and we are now in peak foliage with wonderful colors. The views from Chelka Lodge are breathtaking. Many of our guests are out hiking today enjoying the foliage while others are out kayaking as the lake is incredibly calm today. The mornings are crisp – note the steam on the lake – but the days are comfortable with temperatures in the mid-6os. We have guests today from Germany, Ecuador, Israel, Canada, Alabama, Pennsylvania, New York and New Jersey. Quite the cross-section!
