Mike and I scooted out for a quick ride late yesterday afternoon and I spotted this mom with her chick. It's times like this that I would like to have had a zoom lens to capture the moment for all to see and share becuase this photo just doesn't do justice to scenery. We definitely do not want to intrude on their space. This is the first loon chick I have seen this season, but we have had several families of duck float by camp too.
The photography group was here this past weekend and thankfully the weather was much more cooperative this year than last. I should have a few photos to share with you in the next day or so. We are also discussing holding a photography "retreat" this fall to capture some of the beautiful foilage here in the western mountains of Maine. If you are interested in attending, send me an email. We are most likely looking at the middle to the end of September.

Congratulations to the lucky Moose Lottery winners and for those drawn for Maine Wildlife Management District #7, keep us in mind. We offer a "one on one" fully guided hunt for $2,500 (plus tax, gratuity and license) that includes 6 days of hunting, 7 nights lodging and meals for both names on the permit. Prescouting, transportation during the hunt and field dressing included.
Fishing has been great both in the rivers and lakes. Camp is full this weekend with fathers and sons enjoying the best Maine has to offer for both fly fishing and trolling on the lake.
I also have to send a big thank you to Kathy for the beautiful flower baskets that now line the front porch railing of the lodge and are scattered about the grounds. I'll do my best to care for them all summer long.

Although we have had rain over the past few days, we are enjoying some great weather today. The current temperature is 70 degrees with a light wind from the north, northeast.
Fishing on the lake and rivers has been fair to good and with the recent rain, fishing should continue and even improve for the near future.
Just a reminder to those who are travelling into camp that there are several active logging operations underway. Also, they are in the process of replacing culverts, ditching along side Parmachenee Road and laying gravel so be sure to watch for trucks and equipment in the road. If you have a portable CB radio, bring it along and set it on channel 19.
