Finding A New Local Trail

It’s always awesome when I stumble upon a new trail.  Especially when it’s local.

Recently, I found that the trail system in Machias had been expanded.  I’m not sure when this happened.  For all I know, these trails could have existed all along and I just never realized it.

Anyway, I decided to check out the new portion of trail.  Along the route, I came across an old car (I think it was a station wagon), rotting into the ground.  Every time I come across a crumbling vehicle in my hiking adventures, I always wonder about them.  Who did they belong to?  Why were they left?  And how did they get here?

As I was circling the car, taking a few pictures, I noticed something both odd and funny…


This little dude was just hanging out and again, I got to wondering what the deal was with him. Who made him? Who put him here? Why?


The things you find when hiking.



Until next time…






Should I Be Concerned?!


Sometimes when I’m on a hike I come across something strange, something out-of-place, something that makes me concerned.

Again, on a hike at Quoddy Head State Park, I spotted something down on the beach that gave me pause (<– a little writer’s prose for you there).


Half a Canoe


What am I supposed to make of this? Should I be concerned? Where’s the other half of the canoe?! Was there someone in the canoe when the other half went missing? If so, where are they?!






Until next time…
