Hike Along the Bull Branch in Newry

The Bull Branch runs through the Mahoosuc Public Reserve Land in Newry, Maine. Linda, Bob and I bushwhacked along the river which was full of strong water runoff from the spring melt. It was a warm spring afternoon before the coming of the mosquitoes and black flies. We explored a cave above the river and had a picnic lunch on the rocks in a quiet eddy near a rushing falls.

    Beautiful, Martin. The river is impressive.
    I love seeing the bloodroot and false hellbore!
    I hiked at Hermit Island this past weekend, but did not see anything in bloom other than tiny flowering plants in some grassy areas.
    Good to be out before the black flies; they’ll be here any day!


  3. Beautiful pictures, Martin.

    Thanks again, Martin, for sharing your pictures. I feel like I took the hike with you. In one picture it looked like the water was running through a round cave and back into the river. I also loved the picture of the rocky rapids with the evergreen trees in the background. But most of all I loved seeing Linda and Bob having fun and playing on the rocks! Your adventure has ripples…makes me feel good!
