Welcoming Signs of Spring in Door County
March in Door County is a time of transition. It may begin with snow on the ground, but by the time it ends, we’ve entered a new season and the earth is beginning to thaw. It’s the perfect time to witness the stirring of nature. In our newsletter this month we profile Baileys Harbor, examine the fat tire biking craze, and explore the annual tradition of making maple syrup.
We are thrilled to announce a new Capture Door County hardcover book, Seasons Behind the Door: A Photographic Look at Door County’s Seasons.
