6/6/12 Newport-Dover-Foxcroft Rail Trail






Another day with rain predicted and with all the rain we have had we were looking for somewhere  with good draining. The rail trail seemed a good candidate and was. The trail was mostly dry but there was lots of water along side and in the marshy areas for Kelley.

We started at the Dover-Foxcroft end and almost immediately you cross the Piscataquis River



         
 Kelley soon found water to get into


We found lots of nice reflections

                   



                                                                                                                                                                
 A Tiger Swallowtail- thanks John

Wild Columbine

     
There were a lot of these and they were very small- about 1/2 " long



                                                      

                                                                                                                                                                             
A Christmas tree farm we passed on the way home.


In spite of threatening clouds and a prediction of rain we managed  a very nice 3  1/2 hour   hike.
