Maine #4

By handlerstudio  
OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
After leaving Rob's house in Philips, we headed north and east to fulfill a many years want on my part...to visit what in Maine is known as "the County". Aroostook County, the northernmost county in Maine. It is about 20-25% of the area of the state of Maine, and less than 6% of the population. And looks very different than much of the rest of the state, I suspect that many people who are State of Mainers have never been there. There is potato farming, broccoli farming, rapeseed farming, lumbering, and away from the eastern part of the county, a whole lot of wilderness with no paved roads. Right up on the Canadian border, with the St. John's River in between. Pretty easy, it would seem, for people fleeing the US for friendlier shores of Canada. Wade across a small shallow river.

We saw this on the way, and in the tradition of being unable to avoid capturing the strange and weird, well, I could not resist.

Strange and weird it is, but if it stopped you and got you out of your car, it worked. Smile

You were only 32 miles away from my home.
This interesting restaurant opened in 2010 after the Pelletier family was featured on the TV show American Logger (which by the way, did tell the story of big logging in Maine very accurately.) It was very popular with both the locals and the tourists.
Sadly it closed in 2015 due to the ongoing decline of the Millinocket area.
