Where has the summer gone?
Summer flies by in Killington.

Hmm... that was a quick summer!

As we continue our journey through life, it is amazing how time just flies bye. Living in the bubble we call Killington does shelter us from some of the chaos of the outside world. But at the same time, if it were not for taking pictures all the time, one would wonder where does all the time go.

Overall, it has been a good summer at Killington. The weather, as anyone who lives on the east coast of the United States knows, has had it's ups and downs. During this summer we have had many days with uncharacteristicly large amounts of rainfall, hot temperatures, and high humidity. But when we compare our 80 degree days to the weather some of our guests from the metro areas along I-95 have experienced, the weather and temperatures in Killington have been good. Overall, a very nice summer in Killington.

Below is a "brief" photo synopsis of our summer...

Golf in May on Cape Cod
We started the summer with our usual family visit to Massachusetts.
In the middle of it, we took some time for a couple of rounds of golf on Cape Cod.

New floor going down in Owners Quarters bathroom
After vacation, we started renovating the bathroom in the Owners Quarters.
Here is a look at the new floor Bill put down.

New Plates
The restaurant re-opened for the summer season in late June.
We bought new square plates for the chef so he could properly present his handi-work.
Here is a leek-wrapped poached halibut with sweet potato mash.

Mary at GMNGC
We have enjoyed more than a few nice rounds of golf in Killington.
Here is Mary on the 14th tee at Green Mountain National Golf Course

Chef Colin at Killington Golf Course
We have had a couple of rounds with Chef Colin this summer.
Here is chef teeing off on the 16th hole of the Killington Resort Golf Course.

Chef Colin building party platters
Chef has been hard at work all summer.
Here he is showing some house cured salmon which he is about to incorporate onto a serving tray for a party at the inn.

K-town black bear
We have hosted a lot of visitors.
The K-Town black bear has been a frequent guest this summer.

Hiking Deers Leap
We have done a few hikes this year to get the legs in shape for ski season.
Mary took me up Deers leap. It was only right that I took her picture as we hiked back down.

Hiking Killington
One of our more memorable hikes was a trek to Killington Peak with our friends Chuck and Jane.
We tried to take an "Easy Route" which brought us up Great Eastern.
All was going well until we ran into about a mile of excavation work putting in new snow making pipe.
Ah... but this is what adventures are made of...

Lunch at the Peak
To celebrate our climb to Killington Peak, we stopped in to the Peak Lodge for some refreshments.
The margarita's were great!

Back at the inn
But at the end of the day, our life revolves around the inn and our guests.
Mary caught taking a picture of a ramikin of venison chili with pastry puff in the Great Room

We hope you have had a great summer as well. We are now busy preparing for the Fall Foliage and Winter seasons. Drop in and join us for a beverage the next time you are in Killington.

And what ever you do, where it is still summer, don't forget your sun screen.
