One of those headwaters type of things that are both springhole and multiple-brook fed, amongst peat & boggrass muck. About a mile in one-way length with a brook at upper end. What is kind of mind-blowing is that I first paddled/fished this bog 45 years ago(insert a "WOW"!)...and to rock the brain to the fact that the earth is still warming from the last ice age...downstream used to be a flat 30 yard hipbootpack...down from the drier highground through thigh-deep peatmuck and grassy mounds...at the level of the stream. Now the ground leading down to the stream's edge has risen, somewhat dried out(firmed up @ground level, and has filled in with thick brush & young trees(hard & soft-wood). As said it's part of the upper 3-4miles of one of the Penobscot branches' headwaters...and there is a little cutting road leading to it, but it's still pretty remote...
I drifted into IT in my twenties but I've always loved geology...
