  1. it doesn't look like you have eany hiking in a while ,and I see you have not updated some of the ones you have done .
    I have always been interested in fall hiking ,but I am afraid of getting shot at what are your thoughts on that?

    1. My most recent post on hiking is the one for Nova Scotia, so if you were only looking at the Maine entries then it would be easy to miss. You can click on the "Hikes" label on the right and you will see all the posts I've done so far, from newest to oldest. I do tend to only post on hikes after finishing one movie category and before starting another, so that does make them less numerous.

      I like fall hiking because of the leaves, of course. Check out my post on Peary Mountain under "Other hikes in Maine" for one I did a few years ago. I got some great pictures then.

      In regards to hunters, that's why I've never explored down back of my house in the fall. I can't justify the expense of an orange coat and hat for an occasional walk. I don't have much of a worry about well-established trails, though. Hunters often use the same starting point as the hikers and/or they know the area, so they should be aware that there might be people around.
