Where in the woods am I? Sherwood Forest Park

No one won the “Where in the Woods Am I?” game for Sherwood Forest Park in January 2013 given these verbal clues and the following gallery of photos:

“Once again, the Maine outdoors has lifted my spirits after a bout of sickness. On Saturday, I got that awful stomach bug that’s going around (something that I’d rather not describe). Fortunately, it was a 24-hour thing. So by Sunday, I could at least stray from the bathroom long enough to get some fresh air in a nearby park (Bangor area). The loop trail I explored was pretty short, but it got me out of the sickbed, and I even spent some time with a golden-crowned kinglet, a tiny bird with a striking orange and yellow cap (identified later with an Audubon field guide). It was a bit cold — 19 degrees Fahrenheit, with a wind that made it feel like 4 degrees Fahrenheit — but for most of the icy trail, I was sheltered by a variety of trees (birch, white pine, beech). See if you can figure out what small forest I explored in the Bangor area by viewing the photo gallery below. Winner gets an internet high five and a mention in the updated post.

P.S. If anyone tells you that they’ve had a stomach bug recently (or an illness resembling a scene from “The Exorcist”) avoid that person. Cover your face and walk in the oposite direction. Or run.”
