Newport Forest Bulletin Archive

Since April of 2000 my wife Pat & I have been visiting Newport Forest during all four seasons an average of 60 times a year, usually a day visit, but with several overnighters during warm seasons.

Early reports were rather bare bones, but as more people came to read them, the reports became somewhat more elaborate. Soon we were mailing reports out on the internet and, with the advent of inexpensive digital cameras, images were added.
