The Best Way to See Fall Colors in Maine
I looked down at my boots and smiled at the colorful leaf-covered trail. I enjoyed hearing the crunch of leaves under my boots and the sound of water trickling in the river next to me. The last few days on the trail were like a long, deep inhale of fresh air; my yoga teacher would […]

“I suggest that you go to a sporting camp,” Charlene, a Maine native, said to me as I was getting advice on what to do on my trip in Maine. “Okay….” I said with a little hesitation wondering to myself if I should know what a sporting camp was. Was it a place to play […]
Escape the City for Cabins in the Maine Wilderness
I drive my car onto the big grass lawn, park, get my luggage, roll it out onto the ‘tarmac’ (which is a pier), and the pilot says “Slide on into the seat on the right and put on that headset.” Now this is how I like to do air travel; no parking issues, no check-in […]
