Today’s memory. This one reminds me of when we went to Moosehead Lake in 2012. We went on a moose safari. We actually saw two moose and got some great pictures. We also went to Baxter State Park where the Appalachian Trail ends. We have been on parts of the AT in several different states and wanted to include Maine in our list – especially because its where the AT ends. We were lucky enough to see another moose on our way out. He was a lot thinner. We joked that he was he was our $14 dollar moose.
There is a section of road near Greenville that is called Moose Alley that is recognized for both for its stunning vistas of Mount Katahdin and the chance of seeing at lest one moose besides the road.
There really are moose in Vermont! We have been coming to Vermont for years. There are lots of signs for Moose Crossing but we had never seen a moose until today. This one was walking right down the middle of Route 7 – about 5 miles from Dorset. We slowed up and then stopped alongside the road and the moose walked right past us and we were lucky enough to get a good shot.
We were on the road back to the Inn, when we saw a bunch of cars stopped so of course we had to stop. We waited for 20 – 30 minutes for this moose to move so we could get a better picture – but no luck
We had just finished a hike at Baxter State Park and were heading out of the park when we rounded a corner and this guy was in the road. We managed to get a couple of photos before he wandered off into the woods. We call him our $14 moose since that was the cost to get into the park.
