Moosehorn NWR, Calais Maine

From a recent trip to down east Maine and the Moosehorn NWR.  Misty and rainy weather.  Spring colors were spectacular against the green evergreens and white birch branches and trunks.

Tanzania Safari: Tarangire, Serengeti, Norongoro with Chumbe Island and Stone Town Zanzibar

A summary of our trip to Tanzania in June/July 2016.  The occasion was the 13th birthday of our twin grandchildren, Toby and Micah.  We went on a 10 day safari in northern Tanzania where we were treated to great African animal sightings.  We also visited three Tanzanian tribes and finished the trip with a stay in Zanzibar including snorkeling in Chumbe Island and a spice farm tour.

Our trip was a tremendous success as we saw a huge number of different animals and birds and the landscape was spectacular. Credit is due our very knowledgeable guide and driver, Eugene Mrosso, whose deep experience in the African bush helped to locate the animals.
