Maine a Photo Essay


I thought it a good post to feature my favorite state of Maine in a post. I try to travel back to my home state several times each year, especially since flights and hotels are free for me 😀.


Today I’ll offer up the state in pictures and videos from my perspective…..


Starting from the western part of the state is the beautiful Rangely Lakes areas and an extension of the Appalachian Trail known as Height of Land:





Not far from this part of the state is Coo’s Canyon. An area still active for gold panning in the warmer weather. But, in the winter I find it more scenic with the ice and snow.



These ice log jams in the spring can inflict damage if the ice melt along with spring rain brings massive waters off the mountains. The resulting head pressure of the rising waters have been known to take out bridges such as this one here.








Perhaps the state is most famous for its rock bound coast and rugged coastline. Not much sand in this state on the shores!



In the winter the lakes freeze to depths of 3 feet or more of ice. This makes for fantastic recreational activities such as skating, ice fishing, and I even remember ice races with cars in my hometown as a child.





I can’t neglect the wonderful lighthouses that fit the coastline! This one is located at Pemaquid Point.







Portland Bay can be quite scenic as well:



Careful of the fog on your scenic drives!



I love the small towns along the coast that few people visit. These quaint towns are the essence of the real Maine:



Summer is when most tourists come to the state, for good recreational reasons:





4th of July hometown celebrations are a part of all small town America:




I hope you enjoyed this visual tour of my home state. I’m sure you have the same feelings towards your home town and state.
