Route 17

The East Branch of the Swift River rumbles down from the wild Tumbledown region and joins the Swift River on its journey to the Androscoggin. Arctic cold slipped in overnight and these rivers will probably be frozen over soon. They sure were pretty on my drive up Route 17 yesterday.

Farther along the road, I could see the huge expanse of Mooselookmeguntic Lake and the mountains west into Quebec.

I won't be too far from there in June.-I'll be on a fishing(and birding) trip in Pittsburg, New Hampshire which isn't very far from that region.-I've vacationed in Northern Maine, New Hampshire, and Vermont for the last 20 years during the sppring.

It is very cold here too, but the rivers are still flowing fast and high from the thaw and are not freezing over quickly. Lovely winter pictures.

Is it the Swift River that runs through Coos Canyon? I've only been there twice. It was summer and it was beautiful.
