This is prime Moose country but as we had not seem any yet we decided to take a Moose tour in Gorham and set of in a 15 pasenger van with our lady tour guide who is a real moosaholic. She knows everything there is to know about Moose. We set off at 6.30 PM following the river North of Berlin the Great North as it is called. Beautiful scenery but no Moose, we heard many stories of people who had hit a Moose or a deer and totalled their car, we learned about the tick problem of the moose and that the locals often find Black bears in their gardens. Finally it got dark and we saw our first Moose, a mother and baby and a little while later there was bobcat in our spotlight! With another two Moose in became a succesful night safari....
New England has 6 States with each their own motto:  Vermont, Green Mountain State, New Hampshire; Live free or die, Maine; Vacationland, Massachusetts, Spirit of America, Connecticut, Constitution State, Rhode Island,  Ocean State. Even though New Hampshire is the most conservative state in New England, we quite liked the spirit of self sufficiency in some of the remote White Mountain towns. They might be going overboard with not wanting to wear seatbelts or helmets but they are certainly able to survive the harsh winters or deal with the local wildlife such as Black Bears and Moose in their backyard.
