Thought I'd share the Maine foliage with all. These pics were taken on Tumbledown Mountain near Weld, Maine. Enjoy!

The road leading to the trailhead... not paved!

Very nice. You know...23 years ago I left Maine for Nebraska. Boy, if I wasn't only 11 years old, I would have stayed. I spent 2.5 years in Maine on the East coastline near Machias. Cool pix. Brian

Wow that's very beautiful, scenes like that make me wish I lived in a cooler climate, but then the winter scenes with brown everywhere put me off, stays nice and green here in winter :)

Is Machias known for blueberries? I saw a photo a few days ago and I think it was taken near Machias. The land looked blue from all the berries. Very nice... I'll have to check it out next year.

We'll see how much I like Maine after I've spent a winter here. I don't think I'll care too much about the cold (or the brown :D) but I'm not sure how I feel about it getting dark at 4:30.

Yes, Machias is where the annual Blueberry Festival is held!

I was in Maine for July 4th and I biked through it the first week of August from Kittery to Orient, ME in "The County". :)

I love Maine and I love your pictures!

I'm planning a baxter trip next year.. should be great.

Wow, Webb Lake looks almost identical to the reservoir out at Pikes Peak. Even the surroundings look very much alike, although the Rockies are much taller :D

Nice Pics IJ! I guess there's more to Maine than I had thought...

Machias is the home of the big Blueberry Festival! When I was there I was in the parade as a Cub Scout. I use to groom the berries with my rake for momma to make pies and muffins. Berry pickin' was fun. I actually lived in Bucks Harbor, about 2.5 miles from Machias. It was an Air Force Station. It closed, the family moved to the Great Plains....Nebraska. And I mean plain . The population of Machias was around 2k way back when. Brian

The great thing about 'em is no elevation changes for tens of miles. Of course right here on the banks of the mighty 'Mo there are hills everywhere. But yes, very plain in the Great Plains. Brian

One thing about Ohio, there's the Appalachian mountains at the east edge of the state, and the great plains on the west. Here in the Columbus area it's pretty flat except for the valleys, but in Ohio and Indiana the hills pick up as you head south.

We have a wide mix of forests, so we get a lot of good fall colors. But there aren't many places you can stand on a mountaintop and see for miles like that.

sounds like punishment to me.....:( one of my favorite roads, abt 90 mi from here, goes from 5000 to 9000' in 15 miles...at one point, you go through a tunnel and go from Western movie scenery to Ponderosa pines and aspen groves.) i think if i lived there, i'd have to get a big straight-line missile bike like a Hayabusa or ZX12....:D

Beautious! We went to Bah Haba (Bar Harbor) a couple of years ago about this time of year and it was great. The views from Cadillac Mountain were beautiful.

but then the winter scenes with brown everywhere

I don't think you'll have to worry about too much brown for too long.....it gets replaced with lots of white soon enough.

Yesterday I had some nice hiking around Old Man's Cave in southern Ohio (look up hockinghills.com). The colors were not quite at peak yet - but the cider was delicous!

And today, my legs are sore...

Never been to the NE of US of A. Want to go there sometime. Only been as far as D.C. and Ohio.

Might look something like that here in a couple more weeks, very close to the southern end of the Appalachian Mountains.

Seen Cleveland, OH, in wintertime. Big oaks lined the street where my grandparents lived awhile, even without leaves on them I liked it. Probably because of the snow. Lived in AL and FL during that time.

Those Great Plains... cold or hot and/or windy, too, not only flat! Only passed through before but unless I still rode a bicycle a lot I'm not sure I'd ever want to live there.

I want to go back to the Daniel Boone Wilderness in eastern KY, it's like a giant version of hocking hills - sandstone gorges, cliffs, waterfalls - but it goes on for miles. There are many opportunities to walk right off a cliff.

IIRC you can camp just about anywhere except within 1000 feet of a road or stream.
