I was fortunate that during my September visit the Maine Forest and Logging Museum was having Living History Days.
I’m not keen on taking photographs of strangers and this was a well attended event so my images were somewhat restricted.
One of the highlights of the museum is the water powered saw mill which sits on Blackman Stream. The smoke up the stream was from the encampment of the trapper reenactor, who was cooking stew.
Next is the downstream view from that little bridge by the smoke in the first picture, with the covered bridge to the left and the mill works in the middle. It was a grey, dull day and not much fall foliage change; these few pops of orange was about it.
The Maine Forest and Logging Museum in Bradley has a variety of exhibits intended “to preserve, celebrate and educate people about the sustainable forest culture of Maine.”

These are refreshing photos, especially for us here on the west coast with the historic drought. I always forgot what water looked like. 😉 Such beautiful scenes you framed so well.
Thank you, Lisa, so glad that you liked them. Drought is a scary thing, so many adjustments by nature and for humans as it continues.
