River, Sea and Sky

This is the Megunticook River in Maine as it empties into Camden Harbor. The harsh Maine light helped the colors a lot. So did the high water level of the river as it splashed high over the rocks.

Mill Town Morning

P1070758-EditsmallThe milltown that Camden was once is long long gone. However, as long as the smokestack stands, the memory lingers. It’s a shining shard of an era gone by.

Meanwhile On The Top Of The Mountain

I hiked up Mount Battie today. It was lovely on the trail and on the walk up I saw no one. On the top however it was another story. A fully loaded tour bus from New Jersey pulled into the parking lot and unloaded a ton of people.

Now I don’t mean to be unkind and lord knows our state needs tourism dollars but to be honest that bus ruined my enjoyment of the summit.
