|Garland Pond, Garland Maine|
We left Garland on the Oliver Hill Road, a nice ride and went on to Dover-Foxcroft via Route 7, no stopping yet, straight up to Sebec Lake and the "Public Beach". I got a nice photo of Borestone Mountain (you'll soon see), and the water looked chilly to me. It was 28 degrees earlier in the day when I started my walk - it feels like fall for sure. Back in to town a short rest break, and bank visit, and we took off on Route 15 for Guilford.
We went to Guilford for the sole purpose of walking on the "River Trail" and made over abandoned rail bed. What a nice walk you can have on that trail! It's absolutely terrific! Smooth, level gravel surface and what a view of the river! The total length of that particular trail is, I think, about 3 miles, we used about one mile of it, so up and back about a two mile walk.
Back to Dover-Foxcroft via East Sangerville, we used that road so we could get a photo of some of the Highland Cattle, but they were a long ways from the road - so boo hoo, no picture of them.
Down Route 15 towards Bangor, with a stop in Corinna for lunch at the Countryside, keep going to Kenduskeag. cross the bridge and back to Levant. Total miles about 75. Just a short ride.
The "fall foliage" is a real disappointment, too wet in the spring, leaf drop on maple, birch and poplar is awful, and not much color anywhere we went, only a few very short stretches.
