Green Mountains National Forest, Vermont

We camped here for two nights.  The only way to get to our campsite was by water, so we had to make three trips in the kayak to get everything over there that we needed (that cooler was really heavy!!)  But, once we got over there and settled in, it was great!  There was almost nobody else out there and we had the whole Pond and woods to ourselves.  We went out on the kayak to the far side of the Pond at 6:30AM on the second day to hunt for meese, but no luck again.  We did, however see a beaver out fishing.  He circled us 3 or 4 times, just checking us out before he dove underwater and went back into his lodge.  There were three beaver lodges and one dam in different parts of the Pond.  We have some great video of the beaver, we named him Harry.   The second day, we continued our hunt for meese by finding some locals who told us about a place called Shep's Pond where you could regularly see meese at dusk last year, sometimes a dozen at a time.  But, they said that this year there had not been many sightings there, probably due to the harsh winter they just had.  There had been 7-9 feet of snow on the ground in the Green Mountains, and they think that a lot of meese starved over the winter, so the numbers have dropped significantly.  We went to Shep's Pond, but found nothing but some tracks.  The tracks were pretty fresh, but we didn't see anything.  Oh well, we had a great time looking.

Found this stream while out Mountain Biking The Somerset Reservoir - We rode 30 miles round trip to see this place.  That was about 20 miles more than we really wanted to go.
