Flying Moose

Had my camera in hand, battery charged, looking for moose to photograph…but alas…we saw many moose tracks…but no moose!

We did see some deer…but no moose today…you know they just knew I had my camera ready…set on “sports action”  and telephoto lens…they just knew…

So…the other day I had taken some pictures of the Moosehead Lake area’s

Flying Moose…you’ve heard of “when pigs fly”…well, from what I understand, it is a similar story but with a moose context.

So, at the very least, we have a moose photo for today!

The Flying Moose

In the winter, the moose will come out from the woods and eat the snow on the side of the road because it has salt from the roads being salted.  In the other seasons, they lick the salt right off the road.  We’ve been on the road and have had a moose kneeling down who refused to move.

In Greenville, Maine and the surrounding areas, moose outnumber humans 3 to 1!

We can hook you up with a guide or direct you to the best spots to find a moose.

Look at All Those Snowmobilers!

Driving around Greenville and Moosehead Lake, Maine, you’ll see  snowmobiles everywhere.   The snowmobilers are out in force and are taking advantage of the excellent trails.

We have been blessed with so much Snow
that all the winter sports

are being enjoyed to the max!

The East and West Coves of Moosehead Lake are each looking like parking lots

(for snowmobiles!)

The Mountains are Back!

We are still getting “snow showers” but we can see the Moose Mountain Range and Moosehead Lake again.

With the sun peeking in and out, the snow is melting off our roof and is making some pretty spectacular icicles!  Visit the area & enjoy the views!     www.GreenvilleInn.com

Snow Activities Abound!

With the cold temps we have been having, the lake is freezing and should be ready for ice fishing and the start of ice racing…yes, there actually is ice racing on the lake.

The ice racing takes place on Saturday afternoons and is on the West Cove of Moosehead Lake.  The cove looks like a parking lot with all the spectators parked on the ice enjoying the race.  The ice usually gets 3 feet thick, so driving trucks and cars is commonplace.

I have tried to photograph the ice races in previous years, but my simple diital camera could never catch the action.  This year, I hope to be more successful with my new Sony DSLR a380 which is capable of capturing action shots.  I am just beginning to experiment with it.  The pictures below are some of my first attempts.  Let us know what you think.

With the large amount of snow forecasted, I am hoping to also get some great snow shots…the only issue will be how to get to the road if we get as much snow as they are forecasting.  I hope it isn’t windy so the snow will just be “floating” down and I will be able to take advantage of it.

All of our guests have arrived safely and have enjoyed the sunny (although very cold) day today.  We are very happy that the wind has stopped!

We hope everyone has a very happy, healthy New Year!!

Now that’s a lot of SNOW!

Thought everyone might like to see some photos from last year…I think we had over 10 FEET of snow…and we’re off to a great start this year…and it isn’t even officially winter yet!!!  We anticipate a GREAT snowmobiler season!

Lots of snow!

Decorating for Christmas

Vacation is over…it is back to work for us!  We put all the fall decorations away and now we are putting up the Christmas things…so festive!  Once the decorating is done…it will be time to get going on the cookies…Terry has been making these traditional goodies for over 50 years!  Many friends and family await their arrival.

Merry Snowmen!
