Last weekend I had to go out to Sumner, Maine. It is between West Paris and Peru. Those are still small towns. How about south of Rumford/Mexico and north of Oxford? Anyway, rural western Maine. Yes, that is a bit redundant. In spite of our limited snowfall so far this winter, enough stayed on the ground in this part of Maine to cover up the countryside (and the backroads).
Shagg Pond, in the Redding part of Sumner.
The snow covers up some cracks in the ice.
A small camp at the outlet of the pond.
The wind farm, which may be in Bryant Pond. Now that is a town with an interesting historical note.
A deserted farm. See the alders encroaching in on the fields. In the lower-right corner of the image is part of the snow-covered road.
The empty dooryard (as it is called around here).
Then back south to West Paris to see Snow Falls. It really lives up to its name.
