I think I'm going to have to apologize for my pictures, given how nice some of yours are, because I'm no professional photographer and I don't have the greatest camera ever, but...

I'm building a web site all about York Maine, so I sent the kids to school September 1, then took the dog and drove around Cape Neddick (part of the town of York) just taking pics of whatever I felt like.

Just try to imagine that it's actually much more beautiful in person!!!

Here's a picture I took one morning in the summer of 2005 from our dock on Maranacook Lake, looking across the lake at an old Boy Scout camp. This was taken on the trip to Maine to celebrate the 50th anniversary of my first visit to Maine, and we stayed in the same camp as my family did in 1955. It was a very special trip.

Chester and Suzann Chase with My Aunt Martha Clarke

Chester "Chet" Chase, his wife Suzann Chase, and Martha Clarke, after snowshoeing back to Hale Pond.

pssst: is that dog up 'ees butt?

Yes, Chet does look rather young for his age. He was a high school teacher though.

Several times, at Katahdin Lodge, when Chet and Susann were visiting us, one of our paying bear hunters innocently asked Susann what grade in school that Chet was in. The just couldn't figure him out at first.

I can't say that that kind of thing made me feel bad for Chet and Susann, or that it was of any humorous value to me. I was rather neutral about it. As I was about Chet and Susann. I did not particularly care for their company, but I did enjoy it a bit--now and then. I can't remember any outstandingly great or hilarious times we had together, but then they never actually rubbed me the wrong way at any time either.

But I do have to admit that I got a bit of a kick out of hearing how the boys at Chet's school, Katahdin High School, had once 'borrowed' somebody's goat one night and tied it to Chet and Susann's front porch. Any guy who looked like Chet, well, he was a nice guy at heart, but that don't matter to some of the kinds of rugged outdoorsman type of kids who were in an abundance at Katahdin High. Chet was just a natural target for their favorite brand of high jinx.

My Uncle Finley, Aunt Martha, and I all enjoyed going out snowshoeing. It is great exercise.

When walking on snowshoes, you always wear at least one less outer layer of warm clothing than you usually wear; or else you will become overheated and begin to perspire profusely. You usually take off the heavy coat you normally have to wear outside during cold weather. If you do wear too much warm clothing, when snowshoeing, you will not walk very far before you will become very uncomfortable, and you're inner most layers of clothing will become soaked with sweat. Then if you take your outer coat off, you will be chilled to the bone, in-no-time-flat, by your freezing sweat.

Snowshoes can break. Accidents can happen. And a personal health problem or emergency may arise at the worst time, like at the beginning of a snowstorm in the farthest place you have ever snowshoed to. So be as prepared as you reasonably can, for such problems.

Whenever you are out in the woods, no matter what you are doing, always carry two different, reliable fire sources. Like waterproof matches and a fully filled windproof lighter. And stow them in two different places, in two different layers of clothing, or one fire source in a clothing pocket, and one in a backpack pocket.

When you are either working or having fun, or in many cases having fun at working, in the Great Outdoors, you either follow the rules that experienced outdoors enthusiasts tell you about, or you will eventually suffer the harsh consequences.

So listen to and heed any safety info or instructions that your experienced, professionally qualified ski instructor, scout leader, salesperson in an outdoors outfitter store, Maine Guide, author, etc. offers or gives to you.

For many of us, nothing is much better than a good day in the Great Outdoors.

For all of us, nothing is much worse than being the victim of a preventable, tragic situation in the Great Outdoors.

When you are out in the Great Outdoors, please heed the advice and unbendable rules of outdoors experts--the more local to where you are going into the outdoors that the experts are from, the more reliable their information and advice should be.

I'd have died forty years ago, out in the wide woods of northern Maine, if I hadn't listened to and heeded what I was taught, by Maine outdoors-persons who know their stuff.

Please be safe on all of your outdoors excursions.

And say hello to a tree for me.
