In Thoreau’s Woods

A photographic essay.

From the March/April 2012 Issue

There’s a lot to see in the northern Maine woods. Endless forest, miles of clean wild water, a log cabin or two—and brook trout, of course.

What you don’t much see are people, unless you brought them with you. Things haven’t really changed since Thoreau came here in 1857.

This is home water for the Jims. The Penobscot, Caucomgomoc, Aroostook. Quiet Mooseleuk. Raucous Webster Stream, which Thoreau descended from the Allagash and said was like canoeing a thunder spout. And still stiff with wild brook trout a century and a half later.
