Flying Moose

When I took mt last trip to Maine in July of 2006, the Flying Moose was still there! I'm glad nobody was behind me as I slammed on the brakes to do a double take (and get a picture!).

Flying Moose

This flying moose carving is, I believe, a one piece wooden one. It marks the driveway of a private residence.It is between Greenville and Rockwood, Maine, on SR15 (state route 15). Greenville is at the southernmost point of Moosehead Lake and Rockwood is a small community of 200 souls, on the way to Canada.

A sign next to the statue recounts "The Legend of the Flying Moose," as passed down from the Abenaquis tribe.
