Beach Play at Mt. Blue State Park
This past month, work for me has led to places such as the remote forests around Moosehead Lake
, Lily Bay State Park
, Little Moose Public Lands
, and Seboeis Lake
in the Katahdin Region. On the other hand, family play has brought me to the swim beach and playground at Mount Blue State Park
and easy trails and ocean frolicking at Ferry Beach State Park
. This is what makes Maine in general and the Maine Bureau of Parks and Lands in particular so much fun for those of us who love the outdoors. The diversity of recreational opportunity is staggering. Feeling like hiking across wild, rocky trails up and down mountains in some of the country’s moose-iest lands? We’ve got you covered. Munching a lobster roll while strolling along pristine beaches more your speed? No problem. Do you have little kids more into swing sets, slides, and nature programs? OK, we can do that too.
A few weeks back, I had the chance to talk about this diversity as a guest on Spectrum Generation’s Mature Lifestyles show– a show produced by Time Warner Cable Channel 9. Here’s a link to that show.
