Where in the woods am I? Oak Hill

Carolyn Newbert won the “Where in the Woods Am I?” game for Oak Hill in Great Pond Mountain Wildlands in Orland in September 2013 given these verbal clues and the following gallery of photos:

We did it again. Oreo (my dog) and I ran into another porcupine, and this time, it wasn’t in a tree but walking on the ground, obscured by tall grass. Oreo was almost right on top of the critter before I realize it was there. Fortunately, Oreo was on a leash, and I successfully dragged him in the opposite direction and wrapped his leash around a tree for good measure. A few minutes later, the porcupine waddled into the woods and Oreo and I continued down the trail.

Looking at the photo gallery below, see if you recognize where Oreo and I hiked. Leave your best guesses in the comment section at the bottom of the page. Winner gets a high five and mention in the updated post. And as always, stay tuned for tomorrow’s “1-minute hike” video and written summary of the hike!
