...White Mountain National Forest
on the Maine/New Hampshire border
One could spend days and days in the peaceful White Mountain National Forest.
Unfortunately, I only spent one. But I made the best of it, taking in as much as I could.
You don't get far when you stop every two minutes to take a picture. And being surrounded by autumn leaves at their peak, I had no choice but to stop and click. My soul demanded it.
My route took me from Brunswick, through Lewiston on Route 11, then onto Route 26 through Norway, Bethel and up to Errol, New Hampshire. This photo was taken along side the highway between Lewiston and Mechanic Falls.
In my mind, I was on a wild moose chase this day, really, really hoping to run across one (not literally, of course). But, I didn't.
