This is sort of a cryptic image I took last week on our sojourn to western Maine. We stopped in Grafton Township, near Bethel at Screw Auger Falls. Sometimes, when I travel, I come across names that I just love to say Screw Auger... Got to love it. It's a small waterfall complex coming off the Bear River. The total drop of the falls from top to bottom is 43 feet, with the tallest single drop of 18 feet at the gorge. These falls are quite close to the Route 26. Pull into the parking lot, walk about 25 yards and you are there at the top of the gorge. It's one of the most scenic spots, especially during the fall when the trees are exploding in color. Old Speck Mountain is close by. Many summers ago, Elenka and I spent a July 4th weekend backpacking the arduous climb. If you love humidity, black flies and bears, you should have been with us. *This is a photo of granite, being washed-over with the falls' runoff. To me, it sort of looks like I'm peering into either a microscope or perhaps a telescope.
