The mighty Boquet

That’s BO-KET. Not sure why it’s pronounced like that. We used to joke about the power of the Boquet River which flows under our road. Until it wiped out our bridge. It had been dried up to a mere trickle again until the recent rains. Yesterday it was boiling over a dam and sending mist 20 feet into the air.

  1. Funny thing about that pronounciation is that not everyone pronounces it the same. I’ve always pronounced it Bo-kwet. Same thing about venison. You’ll find locals say ven-i-son and some ven-zun. We is a strange breed up here in the north country!!
