I love that area of Maine!

I'm not sure if I should say thanks for sharing it or not, LoneStranger...just kidding. It is beautiful. Now you've got me thinking about going up there for a hike.

 In the modern era of all things internet, nothing is secret any more. You know from email conversations that I used to avoid talking about this spot in public. Now I figure anyone willing to drive that far is probably already aware of it.

Now stop thinking about it and plan a trip. It can't be more than four hours or so from where you live :)

True! Yes, it's about 3-4 hours from us.

I think Maine is a bigger state than many people realize.

 Baxter said yesterday that all Katahdin trails as well as all the other high routes and some low routes will remain closed until June 15th at the earliest. Deep snow year combined with a cool spring pattern has things a real mess up there. I learned my lesson last year and made plans for July instead heh.

We are sending our little one to two, five day sessions at the Girl Scout camp near BSP. I made reservations for the adults to do a Chimney Pond/Davis/Russell/Wass Stream loop the first week. The second week we're doing Center/Little Wass Lake/Russell/Big Wass Lake/Little Wass Lake as an out and back. On the weekend in between we have a cabin rented at Matagamon Camps so we can hang out instead of spending the whole weekend driving back and forth.

Have you got something good on the calendar for this year Denis?
