We enjoyed our time in Baxter State Park. In today’s world, it seems unnatural to be without technology, running water or electricity. Everyone should do it for a few days. It is freeing. We can get consumed in electronics. We take for granted the readily available water and light. At Baxter State Park (and other remote places like it) you can connect with nature, but more importantly, better connect with the people you are with.
We played Uno, sat around the campfire, hiked a trail to a waterfall, went for a canoe ride and ate camp food. We spent time together.
“Man is born to die, his works are short-lived.
Buildings crumble, monuments decay, wealth vanishes.
But Katahdin, in all its glory, forever shall remain the mountain of the people of Maine.” ~Percival Proctor Baxter
