#1: This is it ... the undergrowth was a thick as the mosquitos!

(visited by Dennis Brown)

28-Jun-1999 --While visiting my family in Greenland, NH, I decided to make a special trip north to attempt the final confluence not yet visited in my home state. Using my Garmin GPS III to home in on my destination, I followed a very long and narrow dirt road into sparsely populated woodlands. As it turned out, I branched off of route 25A, but should have been on route 25C. But the diversion was worth it because I discovered a small pond right next to the road with more dragonflys than I've ever seen before in my life. Right out in the middle of the pond was a beaver lodge, and then I spotted the beaver swimming directly toward me. About a third of the distance to me, the beaver dove beneath the surface and did not appear on my side of the pond, as I'd hoped, so I pressed on toward the confluence. Eventually, the narrow track of a road widened and intersected with a paved road, not far from route 25C. Within minutes I watched the distance to the confluence drop to within 200 feet as I drove in a northeasterly direction on 25C. There was a good spot to park on a side road only 1/10 of a mile away, and I set out on foot for the final conquest, taking pictures of the most interesting items I could find, along the way. There was a historical school which appeared to be a residence in use, a mailbox inside what appeared to be a large-mouth bass, and a moose crossing sign.
