The Last Sap of the Season

Although many (most?) North Country maple producers are long since done with the season, our sugarbush is just now throwing in the towel.  The elevation makes it a bit colder, longer, which shifts the timing of our sugaring season.  Bob is boiling the last of the sap down into maple syrup today.  Sunday, we -- me, Bob, my mother and Baby M -- went up to The Lake to grab the last run of sap.  The snow is melting fast and it was warm enough for us to eschew coats.

Looks like a fun day. Glad to see a family doing things together!
