She's much safer here.
Not to be a downer, but these great photos remind me of a pet peeve I've had for many years - roadkill. Can you imagine how much roadkill goes on every day around this country (and world)? Our roadways are a maze of slaughterhouses for wildlife. Shouldn't we be trying to do something about it?

Beautiful shot! Love the artistic feel with the red and blue boats. We actually got to see a fog like that in March in Belfast. Got lost on the wrong road at night in that fog! It was a little scary, but we got back where we were supposed to be. It was like we'd driven into a Stephen King movie, down a long lonely road and couldn't see 5 feet in front of the car, literally! We were able to laugh about it the next day, but it was truly a little frightening. We don't have that kind of fog here - ever!

Elcarim,
Actually that photo was taken in Belfast. The fog must have looked familiar to you!

In Utah all roadkill goes to the state prison-they eat better then most of us!

Elcarim it is sad to see any trees cut. I happen to live 10 miles from one of the largest ski areas on the east coast and 10 miles in the other direction from one of the largest paper mills in the east. Our economy relies on the management of these woodlands. Some of the best eastern white pine come from Maine. Our cold climate slows the growth of the trees which produces tight rings and the quality of the wood. Our little town (pop. 255) is still dependent on the harvesting of trees. Mead Paper sold it's woodland (665,000 acres in Maine and Northern N.H.) and then sold the mill. This allowed out of state investors to come in slaughter the timberland and then sell off the properties. The outcome was twofold-first by cutting the wood so hard there won't be a sustainable forest for at least 70 years. Secondly the paper company were excellent stewards of the land by allowing traditional use on these properties ie: hunting,fishing,snowmobiling,snowshoeing and back country skiing to name a few. Now after selling off and parceling out smaller lots we have seen more signs posted disallowing ANY use of the woods. Most landowners/loggers in our great state practice manageable forestry and responsible harvesting practices to ensure the growth of the northern woods and protect the beauty of our state.
