“Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where Nature may heal and cheer and give strength to body and soul alike.”   – John Muir, The Yosemite, 1912.   A Maine road trip through Belfast, Camden, and Rockland Maine is a great way to spend a day any time of year. The Rockland Breakwater Lighthouse is a great final destination, starting from Bangor. Do you recognize any of these sites? Comment below!

      “Sunshine is delicious, rain is refreshing, wind braces us up, snow is exhilarating; there is really no such thing as bad weather, only different kinds of good weather.” John Ruskin quotes (English Writer and Critic of art, architecture, and society, 1819-1900)

  Travel in numbers. The Ranger took this of us on our way up – before we started the trek. 7 am – ish. Plan to camp in advance. AND CERTAINLY BRING  A HEADLIGHT WITH BATTERIES IN CASE OF 16 HOUR HIKE. Great end to a great night….16 hours later. As I was entering the final mile I found myself never wanting to see another boulder again….and I said “I’M NEVER DOING THE KNIFE’S EDGE AGAIN….” After the bonfire, and a glass of wine, we were planning our next trip. <3 DD

One beautiful February day in 2012,  my friend Melissa and I took my old Dodge Durango for a four wheel drive adventure through Millinocket, Maine. We took some of the logging roads so we could see Mount Katahdin.  We explored, we had a beautiful sunset, and it was a great day overall. As I’m writing this in 2016, I couldn’t even tell you where we drove. But it was beautiful!
