Hidden America

Can you guess where we’re off to on our October Hidden America odyssey?

October

Read about this tucked-away area, with deep, dark forests, in the October issue.

Hint: Take local legends about strange, reclusive folks living deep in the dark cedar forests and near the cranberry bogs and add in the mystery of a hideous monster that’s said to haunt these barren, sandy wastes. For something a little lighter, add a scattering of lovely lakes, hiking trails through silent pine forests, and a superbly preserved historic village set by a winding river.
