5/7/12 Goose Ridge Trail

Beautiful sunny day in the low 60s. We started from the trail head on Freedom Pond Road .

I did not see the insects on this Trillium until I processed the picture

 When I was a child and living in the country we often found the red Trillium and sometimes the white but I had not seen this color before.

At one point the trail passes through Spirited Horses Ranch and this meadow is part of the ranch.           

 Kelley was excited by this hike. I think she liked the change of pace.                                                                                                                                                  

These fiddleheads were quite a bit smaller than those you see being sold to eat .                                                                                                                                                                                                            

A beautiful day and a very pleasant walk in the woods. We did not go all the way to Penny Road but turned back on the pipeline easement.  3 hours                                                                             


  1. Lovely pictures. That is an odd colored Trillium. I think it's an aberrant Scarlet Trillium. It doesn't fit the descriptions of any of 8 trilliums listed in my Newcomb's guide.
    I envy your time to hike and hoping to do much more in my retirement.Just a couple more months. My dog will be very happy.

  2. Hi Jill - thanks for your nice comments and the Trillium info. Kelley sure loves to be out hiking- I ended up hiking as much as I do because of Kelley's needs but it has been good for me too.

  3. Looks like spring is advancing nicely up there in Maine. Thanks for sharing the great photos!

  4. Thanks for looking and commenting- It seems like it's been a long time coming

  5. I have just come across your blog and although no-where near Maine (I'm in Spain), your posts are wonderful and inspiring. Thank you.

  6. Thank You.I appreciate your nice comment. Are you a hiker? How did you find our blog?
