Notes from the Heart...Moose Watching

Want to see a moose? You can take a moose tour in
the town of Gorham, NH (where they say there's
a 95% chance of spotting these gentle giants).
Scenic Moose & Wildlife Tours are also available
in the town of Lincoln, NH.  Guests take
a 2 ½ to 3 hour bus journey through the
White Mountains in search of New Hampshire’s
gentle giants.

If you want a DIY moose tour, here are the best routes to take in NH for the best
chances of seeing a moose:

•        Route 3 north of Pittsburg to the Canadian border;
•        Route16 north of Milan to the Maine Border;
•        Route 26 east of Dixville Notch to the Maine Border;
•        Route 112 from Lincoln  east to the Bear Notch Road;
•        Route 110 north of Berlin to Rte 110A.

New Hampshire Fish & Game suggests traveling these roads at dusk, looking for
roadside salt licks where moose come out of the woods to feed on road salt that
has washed off the roads and accumulated in wet areas.   

When searching for moose, remember  SAFETY FIRST! While watching moose,
NEVER approach them or allow them to approach you. Stay in your vehicle or
well away from the moose. Moose are large, potentially dangerous animals that
can run as fast as a galloping horse. They do not always show their displeasure or
give any warning before attacking.  Please give them a wide berth.

In addition to the roads mentioned above, some of New Hampshire's northern
ponds are great spots for moose watching. Moose feed on aquatics early in the
morning and at dusk, so, any pond with aquatics may hold moose at these times
of year.  More info:
Moose Watching.

Garden: Cranberries for Thanksgiving
Turkey without cranberry sauce? For most New Englanders that's as unthinkable
as Thanksgiving without turkey! In fact, even the Pilgrims enjoyed this versatile
perennial fruit with their first Thanksgiving meal.

Recipe: Thanksgiving Glazed Vegetables
Although most of us have Thanksgiving traditions, some variation in the menu
can add interest to the meal.  You can include white potato, sweet potato and
carrots, roast them a day or two before Thanksgiving and reheat them in the oven
as the turkey rests. This recipe is a nearly foolproof variation on an older dish.
