Green Mountain National Forest



(Alces alces americana)

We spent two nights in southern Vermont at a remote site off Forest Road 86 which was off Forest Road 71.

The K9s had a grand time jumping after frogs in the bog, so much so that they were oblivious to the moose brunching across the pond.

The morning of departure, after loading everything into the Subaru, I heard the dreaded noise indicating my battery was dead. It was later, I understood my shuddering rear hatch had been trying to forewarn me of the impending issue.

I was standing in the middle of Forest Road 71 trying to get through an incredibly painful phone call with AAA (the agent was NOT in VT, therefore had little comprehension of the road system) when a couple from Massachusetts so kindly not only avoided running me over but also gave me a jump start.

"The world is so unpredictable. Things happen suddenly, unexpectedly. We want to feel we are in control of our own existence. In some ways, we are, in some ways we're not. We are ruled by the forces of chance and coincidence." - Paul Auster
