What do you think of when someone says Maine? Do you see the beautiful coastline, the many harbors, the lobster boats? That’s only a small portion of this state. Almost 70% of Maine is uninhabited! No power lines, no stores, no towns, and in many areas there are no roads!
Those are all very fine to go see, if you don’t mind those people “From Away!” If you really want to get away, spend some time IN nature, not just beside it, go to Baxter State Park. There you will find large numbers of what I believe to be two of the most noble creatures on this planet, moose and deer! (Don’t go in the spring…Black Fly Season!)
Here’s the website Baxter State Park
For a taste of “The Other Maine”, the more rural side of things, here’s a short video of the road from Kingfield to Farmington Maine that I took this afternoon.
