July 6 – 9, 2020
We traveled to Eustis and stayed at the very popular Cathedral Pines Campground on the shore of Flagstaff Lake. It’s a beautiful setting and was crowded with families, mostly from Maine. Our site was right in the middle of everything, and too close to the noisy basketball court!
We rented a canoe for a paddle down the west part of Flagstaff Lake – no photos from a tippy canoe!
We enjoyed a fun dinner with Rudy and Tessa.
We then headed west where we saw some lighter traffic.
We went down through Rangeley where there was quite a bit of damage from the thunderstorms that happened during the preceding days. We drove over the Height of Land with its views of Lake Mooselookmeguntic.
From Route 17 we headed east through Byron Notch and by Tumbledown Mountain on the Byron to Weld Road to Mount Blue State Park. We had lunch looking out from Center Hill towards the Northern Appalachian Mountains, including Old Blue, Elephant, Tumbledown, and Little Jackson Mountains.

What beauty! And right in your backyard. I’ve never been to Eustis. Most of the time I’m in Maine I’m concentrating on the coast, ignoring the beautiful inland lakes region! You found a lovely spot (but for the basketball court!!). Glad Sylvie is getting a workout. Love, E and R
AT goes over the Bigelows. Great views and blueberries.
