HIKING AT FORE RIVER SANCTUARY – PORTLAND, ME

REPOSTED FROM MY THOUGHTS (hshawjr@blogspot.com/haroldshawjr.com)

We went to Porltand today and hiked the Fore River Sanctuary, I have lived there a couple of times and never realized that there were hiking trails out there.  Actually if we lived closer this would be a great place to do the kind of easy trail running that I love to do.

For some reason this was about a 1/2 mile into the hike instead of at the start?

My least favorite of critters, especially when they startle me.
It is amazing that there is this kind of “country” and wildlife within 10 minutes of downtown.  I would love to have this kind of trail in my backyard, but love where I live and wouldn’t want to live back in the city.
