Even though this area had a foot of snow less than a month ago, there was little sign of it. The growing season is getting under way due to the temperate breezes off Lake Champlain. In fact, the growing season is longer than other areas that are hundreds of miles south. No sign of much wildlife, although the fast and furious chirping of birds could be heard at dawn. In NH, I have seen many packs of wild turkeys, sometimes roaming in groups of 20 or more. It's a sight to see them high up in the trees.
