New images: Katahdin region, North Maine Woods

No Comments

I’ve posted two sets of new images: Katahdin Region, and North Maine Woods, the final installment of images of the Maine Woods (trip report).

Although there are a number of foliage images, those two series are more about the relationship of people with the land, both recreational (hunting) and commercial (logging).

In a place that is overwhelmingly (94%) privately owned, and therefore unrestricted by environmental concerns, the landscape has been deeply impacted by more than 30,000 miles of logging roads. More than 500,000 acres are logged each year, and the cut is accelerating – with stakes raising with each massive acquisition – although the economic benefits seem to be shrinking at the same time.

Is an alternative possible ?
