Mount Waldo

Mount Waldo is located in Frankfort, Maine. It’s an awesome day hike if you live in the Greater Bangor Region, or MidCoast Maine. It offers great views at a low elevation, and it’s only a few miles round trip. It’s private land, and is not well maintained or well marked, so for that reason, I’d say this hike is not good for beginners, because of that […]

Precipice Trail

The view was totally worth it. We got a little confused when we hit a cave – it almost appears as thought you might climb over it, but then you can’t really see […]

Don’t Let Your Maine Summer Slip Away

I am reflecting on how to take advantage of the rest of the Maine Summer. Angus King recently said “Summer lingers, but cool mornings are a portent. Remember, however, September is our secret”.  If you are not following Senator King on Instagram, you should consider doing so- He rides his Harley around the state and showcases everything that our great state has to offer and […]
