Down East in the Heart of Maine
As has become our tradition, we dedicated much of our summer to exploring the eastern bits of our fine country, among visits to family and friends. This year was no exception – with a trip, perhaps a bit longer than we would like – to explore Northern New England, Cape Cod, Rural Vermont, and central Appalachia. For your viewing pleasure, we’ll be publishing one post for each state we photographed: Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Vermont, Virginia and Tennessee.
Above, is one of our favorite shots from a pair of loons we’ve been photographing for the past several years. They spend their summers on Rangeley Lake, located in northwestern Maine, a handful of miles from both the New Hampshire and Canadian borders. The birds have developed a bit of a pattern, and can be found most mornings and evenings along the strip of lake where we stay. Unfortunately, this year they were not accompanied by a chick, but hopefully they will have more luck again next season.
While in New England, we also took a day trip to Boothbay, Maine. Located about an hour north of Portland, this area of Maine offers a wide variety of tourist-oriented adventures, from puffin tours, to the Boothbay Railway Village (pictured above). This was our first time to this part of Maine, and the park proved especially enjoyable, offering vintage train rides, a collection of several dozen historic structures, many of which you could tour, a large collection of antique cars, and an extensive model railway.
