With all of my out of state travels in the last few weeks, I didn’t have a chance to go out touring. Not wanting to skip this week, I dug out pictures of a town that I had toured in June, but hadn’t written about yet. I try pretty hard to keep all of my posts current, but with the impending “stick season” I decided to have one last look at summer.

Dummer is a beautiful little town in the great north woods. Traveling along Rt. 16 I came across the Paul O. Bofinger conservation area…




It looked to me like a place I’d love to come back to with my kayak (maybe next summer)…






There were some lovely, wispy clouds that afternoon…




Although Rt. 16 through Dummer is only about 5 miles, there were plenty of picturesque scenery…




And plenty of places to see my favorite great north woods animal…the moose…






This guy grazed by the roadside for quite a while. I love seeing them in velvet.


To learn more about Dummer, visit the state’s website.


I promise to get out and tour this week. Thanks for stopping by!

    Love the shot of the wispy clouds! Never heard of this place but your post makes me want to see it in summer!

      It really was very scenic. We’ll have to road trip with the kayaks!!

    We have a Dummer here in Hampshire England. Maybe I’ll go and take so photos so I can compare. 🙂 I’m pretty sure I won’t see a moose though

      That would be very cool. We could co-author a post.

        It’s about thirty miles from me which is a bit of a walk but maybe in the spring I could get a train and investigate. Basically it is a tiny village in the middle of nowhere quite near Basingstoke. I think I need to check out more places that are in NH and OH too, maybe some are closer to home 🙂

        Just Googled and you have a South Hampton which is easy as I live in Southampton, a Newport, I’d have to catch the Isle of Wight ferry for that, a Winchester, I can walk there but only in good weather, and a Portsmouth, about fifteen miles away but pretty horrid. There are a few others, like Salisbury, that would be possible by train too. Maybe we could do a series 🙂

        I think that would be really cool! I won’t be doing South Hampton until the spring or summer, but that would give us time to work on getting pictures together. I think this would be loads of fun!

        Sounds like a plan 🙂

    This is another one I’ve never heard of. I don’t know how you find so many! That moose is an impressive critter.

      I hadn’t ever heard of it either until I started this adventure! He was pretty young, I think. Hard to tell because they antlers had just started growing. I love seeing them in velvet.

I'd love to know what you think!
