White Mountains trip… Day 2. Moose Cave.

 

183

 

Down the road from Screw Auger Falls in Grafton Notch you’ll find a trail to the Moose Cave.

 

169

 

Easy walking through the forest….

 

170

 

And steps that run along a gorge.

 

178

 

We did a lot of looking down.

 

196

 

The fractures in the granite were impressive and show you what the force of running melt water can do.

And then before we knew it…

 

197

 

We saw a sign, but no cave.

 

203

 

Oh, wait….

 

205

 

I guess that hole was it.

 

207

 

Not my idea of a cave…. but I did feel sorry for the moose.

Once a Marine, always a Marine.

 

219

 

Uncave-like cave seen, experienced and photographed… we took an alternate trail out.

 

231

 

Some granite steps…

 

233

 

And a tree root staircase later….

 

237

 

We came upon a moss garden.

 

240

 

What kind of moss you ask?

 

241

 

Reindeer moss.

Isn’t that exciting?

 

236

 

Look how excited I was…

 

243

 

Mutilate the moss?

No…

I would never.

Window – 1. Bird – 0.

 

We live in the country with a large back yard…

A field….

and some woods.

This leads to a lot of avian visitors.

Some of whom sadly commit suicide on our windows.

I wasn’t here when this particular bird went splat, but it did leave me a rather prominently placed clue in our bedroom.

A perfect dead bird body print.
