Me: Hey, we’re running out of time for a last adventure before we go back to Houston.
Hubby: So what do you have in mind?
Me: Hmmm, how about a couple of days at Moosehead Lake?
Hubby: OK, if you can find us a place to stay.
That proved to be a challenge, but luckily Blair Hill Inn had one room available.
Our room was beautifully appointed
with spectacular views of the lake and mountains.
So, what’s special about the Moosehead Lake region? It is all about the outdoors-fishing, canoeing, kayaking, hunting, hiking-in a pristine environment.
Speaking of hiking, the Appalachian Trail runs through the region and ends at nearby Mount Katadin.
It’s not likely I’ll ever do the entire 2100 mile trek, but I have a bit of it under my belt!
For campers, the area has several state parks with ample campsites.
Some folks had seasonal touches which made “roughing” it seem rather homey.
Like most of Maine, the population is sparse, and Kotadjo states it best!
It’s said that moose outnumber humans 3:1, but we saw nary a one. Only a lone deer crossed our path.
When we got to Kotajdo, it was about lunch time and there wasn’t much on the road ahead of us. That meant stopping here where an enterprising soul provided staples for hunters and fishermen and served a few sandwiches.
. We were the only people there whose dress gave us away as visitors. When our Texas license plate was noted, there was some surprise we weren’t driving a pickup!
The Moosehead Lake region is unspoiled, and every effort is made to keep it that way. Whenever there is a proposal to increase development be it residential or wind farms, it meets strong resistance.
While that may not seem like progress, it is one of the reasons Maine is one of this country’s gifts when it comes to natural beauty.
