August 8 to 9, 2020
We left Houlton early in the morning and were treated with a view of Mount Katahdin from the highway. We also saw two moose grazing in a marsh just off the highway! We drove west from the highway at Howland through Lagrange, Milo, and Dover-Foxcroft to Peaks-Kenny State Park on Sebec Lake. We arrived early enough to snag a non-reservable campsite.
After settling in we headed out on a hike through the park.
It is a rocky hike with lots of interesting trees and flora. There are a number of trees with roots grown over the top of boulders. The light coming through the trees was interesting.
Near the high point of the hike is a picnic table sculpture by artist Wade Kavanaugh.
And a rare sighting of the photo-taker.
After the hike we swam in Sebec Lake – beautiful! We will definitely return to Peaks-Kenny when we have an opportunity.
And the next morning we headed home to Cumberland and our pileated woodpecker.
