|The upper part of Maine is proving to be very interesting with its rivers and mountains. We continue to find trails to hike and places that take our breath away. We just returned from Grafton Notch State Park.The Appalachian Trail crosses through the park on the way to Katahdin in Baxter State Park. The final days of a thru hike must be very exhausting given the height of the mountains it travels through. Walking any of the trails in the park during the bright sunlight was like walking over sparkling crystals. The mica is interspersed throughout the granite, reflecting the sun. Still no moose in Maine despite the signs. We just can't get up at dawn to drive the wooded country roads, but you'd think one moose could make an appearance at dusk.
