Cock-a-doodle-do

Jlynn Frazier

98/100

Location: Washington, Maine

Weather: mid 50’s

Observation:  I was up and out of the house early to run. It was a marvelously cool morning. In fact, I hesitated wondering if I needed long sleeves and then thought better of it. It’s all shorts and tanks in July!

The sun was just coming up over the trees as I came up over the hill from my house. I passed a rooster along the side of the road with three hens. He was just a cock-a-doodle-do’ing. As I approached, the hens got in line behind the rooster single file, hurrying back to the yard and out of the road. I wondered what the birds must have thought watching the two way traffic: girl running one direction rooster with hens going the other direction.

Swim And Fetch

Jlynn Frazier

97/100

Location: Washington Pond, Maine

Weather: low to mid 70’s

Observation: I promised James the adventure pup that I would take him swimming so early evening swimming it was. Late enough that the pond was quiet and we were fortunate to have the place all to ourselves. Just the two of us swimming and fetching a stick (well I did the tossing part) to close out an immaculate summer day in Maine.

No Sweet Liquor, No Sweet Mixer

Jlynn Frazier

96/100

Location: Peaks Hill Lodge

Weather: 75 and sunshine  

Observation:  “No sweet liquor, no sweet mixer.” Words of wisdom apparently from my Grammy Bunny. Not with us today but always with me in spirit. For two wild outdoorsy folks, I’d say we clean up pretty well! Cheers to Joe and Colleen on your wedding day!

Window Onto The World

Jlynn Frazier

95/100

Location: Homebase, Washington, Maine

Weather: low to mid 70’s

Observation: Tonight’s window onto the world as i experienced it. The sky features a stunning layering of cloud types and textures paired with a stormy blue sky. And anyone who knows me has heard me talk about clouds a lot. I just love them. You can’t help but feel lighter, feel more hopeful, feel more full of possibilities when you look up on a night like tonight.

Location: Washington Pond, Maine

Weather: Humid 70 degrees before 7am, climbing above 90 again today

Observation:  It’s been scorching hot, but I don’t mind. Summer is here and the intense burst of heat won’t last too much longer. I’m continually amazed at how powerfully beautiful the sun is.

Wide Awake

Jlynn Frazier

92/100

Location: Washington, Maine

Weather: Humid, sticky, mid 60’s and climbing

Observation:  Along my early morning run I paused to admire the fog. I was still waking up as I put one foot in front of the other. The birds, however, were wide awake and swooping back and forth from tree to tree.

Lily Pad Paddle

Jlynn Frazier

91/100

Location: Liberty, Maine

Weather:  Humid, high 60’s this morning with a mix of hazy sun and clouds

Observation:  Just as I was passing by on my morning commute, I caught a flickering glance of a canoe out of the corner of my eye. With lily pads in the foreground, a cabin perched in back, nestled in between I stopped to see a man paddling across the pond. He was floating along quiet and slow, among the green leaves, lily pads, and tall grasses. A ‘where’s waldo’ type moment on a hot summer morning in Maine.

Local Strawberry Goodness

Jlynn Frazier

90/100

Location: Beth’s Farm Market, Warren, Maine 

Weather: got, humid, I think actual temps hit low to mid 80’s

Observation: There is no comparison to the goodness of local Maine strawberries. They are amazingly sweet and juicy. And they look right. None of these big, odd shapes ones. These are all small to mid size, but mostly small. Food is a challenge in a climate like Maine’s, so we celebrate and support our local farmers, like Beth’s Farm Market all spring, summer, and fall.

Return To Ragged Mountain

Jlynn Frazier

89/100

Location: Ragged Mountain, Rockport, Maine

Weather: 64 and humid when I took off down the trail at 6:30am, 80 and thick with heat and my exhaustion when I left the trail a few minutes before 9.  

Observation: Today delivered on every ounce of heat and humidity our weather scientists and observers have been suggesting was heading to Maine. After working all week, I was thinking about sleeping in a bit because I’m really tired. Then I thought better of it. I wanted to run and knew the best time was the morning. So I decided to get up and hit the trail in whatever form I was in and then to fill my day with rest and recovery.

I actually even woke up before the alarm! It has been awhile since I’ve been to Ragged Mountain. I couldn’t help but to smile and feel comfort when I pulled into the parking lot and saw that I was the only one there.

It was hot, humid, and I literally sweat buckets along the way. The birds were cheering me along and welcoming me back to the trail. At least I would like to think they were anyways. Perhaps the song was also my own pouring out like the sweat from my body. One of gratitude, fortitude, and raw authenticity. I have struggled with what seems to be a sort of misalignment within myself and the rhythms of my body. This has led me on a hard journey that I’m still on. A morning like today was just what I needed. A time to connect with Mother Earth and all the glorious creatures, to which I am one.

Travel Pond

Jlynn Frazier

88/100

Location: Travel Pond, Jefferson, Maine

Weather: Balmy, high 60s this morning. The fog quickly fading as the hot summer sun burns through. 

Observation: It’s Friday and the sizzling heat of summer is here! No complaints coming from me. No matter how slow or tough a run or hike might be. No complaints! It’s Maine, and we don’t get days like this all that often. When we do, I take every opportunity to soak in the energy of the sun and bask in the glory of the long hours of daylight. That includes taking a slightly longer commute to work to stand on my perch at the waters edge. To be just for a moment or two. To give thanks to the sun. I pause, close my eyes, and my ears perk up to the listen sounds of the birds, frogs, and fish. 

I’ve referenced this place in many ways and never knew the name until today. I entered the web of information and quickly discovered this  roadside accessible gem is Travel Pond in Jefferson.

Foggy Bird

87/100

Location: Washington Pond, Maine

Beets

Jlynn Frazier

86/100

Location: Homebase, Washington, Maine

Weather: High 70’s and humid

Observation:  A hot evening led us to vegetarian style BBQ... pulled “pork” sandwiches made with onions, beets, red potato, and portabello mushrooms. So glad to have fresh local produce across my plate again. Oh those beets, kale, onions, carrots, potatoes, scallions, and melt in your mouth tomatoes. Feeling the shop local vibes. In full force this evening.

At Waters Edge

Jlynn Frazier

85/100

Location:  Unity Pond, Unity, Maine

Weather:  Mid 70’s and breezy with bright blue skies

Observation:  It was definitely fantastic running weather today, so I laced up my shoes and hit the road for a lunch run. At the midpoint, I decided to take a moment to catch my breath while standing on the rocks at the waters edge. A simple moment to soak in the summer vibes.

Beaming Light

Jlynn Frazier

84/100

Location:  Washington, Maine

Weather:  high 50’s, humid, stormy clouds clearing 

Observations:  Stormy weather was passing and the clouds were nothing short of phenomenal. Clear and bright in one slice of the sky, and another slice of the sky filled with dark puffy storm clouds. I stood there watching this cloud for a few minutes. Then, just as I was about to turn around to leave the sun beamed out from behind the cloud.

Little House, Lots Of Nature

Jlynn Frazier

83/100

Location: Homebase, Washington, Maine

Weather: Cloudy morning, turned warm and sunny with temps in the low 70’s

Observation: As I pulled back into the driveway after running to our Beth’s Farm Market (a gem we are so lucky to have close by), I sat my basket down to admire our home nestled into the earth surrounded by trees and a gorgeous blue sky. I must also call special attention to the mix of puffy clouds and long wispy clouds dancing a swaying above.

Raindrops On Water

Jlynn Frazier

82/100

Location: Hidden Valley Nature Center, Jefferson, Maine

Weather: drizzly turned to rain, temps dropped into low to mid 50s

Observation: I paused during my run today to look out at the water and gather my breath. When I looked down and texture and rhythm of the drops hitting the water grabbed my attention. When I get out to be in nature, it always has something new to show me.
