Jane Bromley Langley, George Fields, Scott Bennett and Nuggett Wagner won the “Where in the Woods Am I?” game for Patten Stream Preserve in Surry at the beginning of November 2015 given the following clues and photo gallery:

Life’s been pretty crazy lately, and as a result, I haven’t had as much time as I’d like to spend out in the woods. I’m sure most everyone knows what that’s like — having house projects, family events, work deadlines and other obligations tie up most of your time. But where there’s a will, there’s a way. So last Friday, after a work meeting, I catapulted from the office, picked up my dog from home, and drove to a local preserve that I’d yet to explore.

(It’s amazing that after nearly four years of this hiking column, there are still trails near my home that I haven’t visited yet!)

See if you recognize the Maine preserve — less than 1 hour from Bangor — by viewing the photo gallery below. Leave your best guesses in the comment section at the bottom of the page. Winner gets a high five and a mention in the updated post. And if you like the looks of this beautiful preserve (and I think you will), stay tuned for tomorrow’s “1-minute hike” video and writeup on the trails.
