Back to the North Country

With work pleading with employees to use vacation time and half (or more) of the country pretty sketchy at the moment, I did what I’ve been wanting to do for years: take another summer vacation to northern New England — specifically northern New Hampshire and the boreal forest.

The trip started in Errol on Lake Umbagog and now continues in Pittsburg, which borders Canada. Here are a few photos I’ve managed so far. More to come — of course.

The main target is moose. New England’s largest mammal, however, is having a rough go of it of late. Here’s why.

  1. About ten years ago I saw my first and only ruffed grouse standing in the middle of the road, here in Connecticut. I stopped driving and put my emergency flashers on and watched it for a few minutes until it decided to finish crossing the road. I didn’t know what it was and had fun trying to identify it from memory when I got home. Love your photo ~ how nice to see one in a natural setting!
