Mount Katahdin is the northern terminus of the Appalachian Trail. The first image is a view of Katahdin on the horizon beyond Moosehead Lake. The second image is Katahdin's peak, called the 'The Knife's Edge'; it is just eighteen feet short of being one mile above sea level. The third image shows a nesting Common Loon. The fourth photo shows one of the most beautiful spots on earth, the Rangley Region's Big Kennebago Lake. The fifth image shows the cabins and a boat at Grant's Camps on Big Kennebago Lake and the sixth is a beautiful Kennebago sunset. The seventh picture is the Kennebago River between Little and Big Kennebago Lakes. The eighth picture shows a snow-covered Katahdin and its reflection. The “Nash o' Maine” Brook Trout mount c.1910 was restored by my friend, David A. Footer of Lewiston, Maine.
Where’s the Ranger?
Oh Moosehead Lake, blue Gem o’ Maine,
From Northeast Carry, Chamberlain;
Green Forests, groomed; this vast Domain,
Assaulted, doomed, by Acid Rain;
So Preservation’s much in Vain!
Pollutants make such living Hell,
With Nature’s Game of Show and Tell;
Katahdin’s Magic casts its Spell,
O’er Brook Trout, Salmon nonpareil;
‘Tis tragic, Man’s no Sentinel!
