Aug 19, 2009 - Jackman, Maine

We crossed back into the US south of Quebec City and have spent the last two weeks in Jackman, Maine. It's 14 miles south of the border and is true "northwoods" country. Beautiful lakes, rivers, streams, forest and not much else. It's really a winter sports area...snow mobilers take over all winter. But I think it will not be a place I visit in January since tons of snow and minus 35 degree weather is not my cup of tea. No cell phone service up here. No satellite TV, just very basic cable. Internet is only available at the camp office, when...

Sep 3, 2008 - On the Road Again - Jackman to Acadia

Still no moose for Jim. This is getting serious. We’re coming south from Quebec toward Maine, and although Maine is prime moose country, we are heading toward more populous areas. You may have gathered that this has become Jim’s quest. He really wants a trophy moose picture for this trip. Geologically speaking, we learned that Quebec sits in a glacial valley. This valley is smack in the middle between the Canadian Shield, that granite cap which we talked about before, and the end of the Appalachians. So, we’ll learn more about the...

Jul 1, 2008 - Moxie Falls

We did it! We finally had the opportunity to hike to Moxie Falls today. We headed out early this morning and enjoyed a lovely drive and then a gorgeous hike. I must say the falls were definitely worth the wait. Even Blayde enjoyed the hike! Due to the trail having numerous areas that were mud bogged, as a result of the heavy rains we’ve been experiencing the last couple of weeks, Blayde had the luxury of being carried across/around these messy areas… of course Willis and I did not have that luxury. Overall the hike was not too steep,...

Oct 1, 2007 - Lakes & Leaves...

Woke up this morning to cooler temps & overcast skies. It hovered around 60 degrees & the sun was in & out all day, mostly out. Works for us as we are doing a driving tour today. I packed a picnic lunch, put dinner in the crock-pot & we took off about 10am. First stop, the quaint little town of Newport. It is amazing how many folks are decorating for the Fall harvest. Bales of hay, corn stalks, mums & pumpkins are used widely in the whole area. Neat. Things you normally wouldn't see in Vegas! There were also some lovely homes in this little...
