Weekend in Rangeley, Maine

 






Mary Beth, Leann and I have been spending the Labor Day weekend in Rangeley, Maine.  We had a Maine Peace Walk begin here a few years ago and I've wanted to come back ever since.  It's a really beautiful place as you can see.

Yesterday soon after we arrived we hiked to the top of Bald Mountain where the view is spectacular.  Then today we walked a Bog trail through the woods alongside Rangeley Lake.

We had lunch with local Tom Ryan, originally from Boston, and a long-time member of Veterans For Peace.  Tom moved here about 10 years ago and was a big help to us when we started our peace walk in Rangeley.

In the morning we will drive to Rumford, the home town of my step-dad, before heading back home to Bath.
