I keep returning to the beauty and tranquility of the rugged Maine coast. Actually I was born and grew up about 50 miles that coast and I rediscover it during my visit when go to spend time with family in Maine. My adopted area along the western shore of Lake Michigan has many similarities, but it doesn't have the high panoramic views, nor does it have the salty sea breezes. If only I could import them to Wisconsin!
The views that you see here are from Mount Battie near Camden on the central coastal area of Maine. The day was sunny, the sky a brilliant blue, and while there were a number of people enjoying the view it was still possible to take landscape photos without intruding people bodies. The Maine coast is always worth visiting, but especially after the height of the June-August tourist season when the population of the State seems to triple in size and coastal Route 1 has bumper to bumper traffic.
Thanks for visiting, I hope that you enjoyed the views. May your own travels be interesting and enjoyable.
BTW-Travel excitement is in the air here, plane tickets for a May 2012 Ireland trip arrived this week, another new place to explore!
