Sunkhaze Meadows National Wildlife Refuge

Mary joined us on this beautiful day. We first did the Carter Meadow Road loop trail. About .3 miles from the County road is an old cabin that marks the beginning and end of the loop ( though not shown on this map) and near the middle is an observation platform. There were some wet sections but it was mostly in pretty good shape and a very pleasant walk. New leaves are just starting to come out on the trees.

We then went up the road a short distance and did the Oak Point Trail which was also pleasant. Just before we finished Kelley had a dip in Birch Stream.



  1. Hello Mary! What a pleasant time of year with leaves budding out. It must have been a little frustrating for Kelley in the Winter with all the water frozen.

  2. It was frustrating but she still sometimes found unfrozen streams to get into.

  3. Hello John W. It is a great time of year in Maine with leaves starting to bud. Kelley is very excited about all the water that is about this year.
