Well, our first New England adventure has drawn to a close. Our last stop was Rangeley Lake, tucked away in the heart of Maine’s western mountains, near the northernmost corner of New Hampshire & Quebec. It is really off the beaten path, but what a jewel. Plus, the season is nearly over & there are very few campers. Probably the most scenic campsite we’ve had, ever. I know I say that a lot but… this one is on the lake in a beautiful conifer forest with our own dock! How could it get any better? We have enjoyed listening to the Loons calling back & forth. A very wild, perfect way to say goodbye to Maine.
The town of Rangeley looks nice & a little touristy but all we did was use the Wi-Fi signal at the IGA! The rest of our stay was spent right at camp. Several nice trails offered our daily exercise, leaving plenty of time for tea on the dock. Finally we had time for art & music. It has been very relaxing.
Remember the “rusticators’? They found their way to this corner of Maine as well. Their golden era lasted nearly a century, ending in the 1950s. The lake’s cool waters stretch for nine miles offering ample room for boaters, fisherman, & campers. A return trip to Vermont & Maine is already in the planning. We are thinking of staying in our favorite campgrounds for the maximum allowed 14 days! Unheard of for us, but hey, we all change.
We are eager to connect with our friends & families again. First stop, State College, PA to visit James & Glenda!
