Western Maine Views

We spent last week in Maine, seeing friends and family and getting to enjoy the crisp Maine October weather.  We also did a few short hikes, so I thought I would post about these.

The first, recorded in this post, was not a hike as much as some short walks in various scenic places as we drove along.  Therefore, I will just post a few photos that I took of the day we spent traveling around the Rangely and Mount Blue areas with two wonderful friends.

This is a panoramic view of Rangley Lake from the east, just south of the town of Rangely.

 And here is a shot of the same large western Maine lake from the west later in the day.

This is a view of Mooselookmeguntic Lake from the southeast.

The Swift River pours though Coos Canyon.

Coos Canyon.  Decades ago, I took my son and my nephew camping at Mount Blue State Park near hear, and we took a swim in the canyon.

Mount Blue from the shores of Webb Lake in Mount Blue State Park, one of my wife's and my favorite Maine state parks.

  1. Oh my, those pictures are breathtaking. What a wonderful time of year to visit Maine.

  2. It was gorgeous there, and the weather was great. The best part though, was visiting friends and family.

  3. Hi, You have captured the beauty really well.
    Thanks for sharing.

    I am also planning for a visit this week along with my wife. It will be great if you could suggest me on how can I enjoy this place using public transport as I am unable to drive for some reason.

  4. Thanks Ranjeet. It is very pretty up that way. Unfortunately, there is no public transportation up that way. I hope you and your wife have a good visit in any event.
