It seems like each time I travel up to Moosehead Lake in Maine, I encounter something new – a flower that wasn’t in the same spot the previous year, a new berry I had never picked, strange weather, and reptiles and/or animals I had never seen before.
My two and a half day trip in July was a great example of this. I picked mini wild strawberries near a bog, was surrounded by crazy wind and waves with barrels so big you could surf, caught a frog, watched a snake slither in front of my foot, and had the chance to see and hear a grouse drumming.
Did I mention I saw five moose in two and half days? I finally got to see a bull (male) moose with beautiful felt on his antlers, but unfortunately, he was too deep in the trees and was scared off by us. The cows (female moose), on the other hand, are a whole nother story – they will sit there and let you get close to them, and even talk to them, and they won’t budge. I saw a calf (baby moose) on my way out of the woods, but it was running down a dirt road, and we were going too fast for me to grab a pic.
Here’s a pictorial of my trip to Moosehead Lake. Enjoy!
