Edge of the Sea

A visit to the Rachel Carson National Wildlife Refuge was another learning experience during my trip to Maine. The nature trail was well marked with brief, yet informative descriptions of the different features of a salt marsh. Stop 11 was called the Edge of the Sea, because all parts of the salt marsh could be viewed from this spot… from the “critical edge” through creeks,salt pannes, marsh grass, and beach, out to the ocean.
