The air was crisp and fresh, the leaves were basking in autumn colors, and the slopes were velvet green. Hundreds of people enjoyed the annual Liberty Festival. Nearby Whitetail has theirs scheduled for October 26-27, 2013.
The Festivals are a time to renew old friendships, meet new friends, enjoy delicious food and have fun! The younger set walked off with painted pumpkins and scarecrows. There was a live blues band (Hard Swimmin’ Fish) and a climbing wall. Chairlift rides were offered to the top of the mountain and its historic view of the Gettysburg, Civil War battlefields. Skis and snowboards were tuned for free. All is set for a great season.
There is, however, one sad note. Ratatouille, the world famous snowboarding possum, died over the summer. But, I refuse to believe it! I hope he is just playing Possum and will wake up. Until then, there is a new set of dogs and other pets learning to snowboard, while their “People” also enjoy playing on the snow!
When she wasn't skiing, Connie Lawn covered the White House as a reporter since 1968.
