Maine: The Pine Tree State

The downhill swirl is delirious at Sugarloaf and Sunday River, whether on skis or a board in the winter, or a mountain bike in the summer. The contrasts are almost unfathomable. Maine’s wilderness is wilder than it was when Henry David Thoreau visited 150 years ago, yet back down on the coast, Portland is both metropolitan and cosmopolitan, a city that honors its maritime past yet dwells in an exciting present of theaters and orchestras, museums and galleries, clubs and fine dining.

Maine just has more.

    You did great on lower Maine, but what about Aroostook County, don’t see anything about it here in article.

    Hear hear Nancy Fink. I live in central Maine and I get really tired when people seem to think that the coast is all there is to Maine – except for the ski resorts.

    I am a ‘Mainer” although we used to call ourselves ‘Maniacs’. Moved out of state 50 years ago but return as frequently as possible. I agree that there is more to ME than the Southern coast. Am planning a quilting store tour this year. I was astounded to see the number of stores available for quilting supplies. Some of the fabric patterns I have only seen in ME. I am shipping to WA this year instead of trying to carry in a suitcase! Marsden’s has TONS of great fabric at a discount. Of course, I’ll eat a ‘lobsta’ roll a day while there–nothing like it anywhere.

    Sorry, you can call yourself a “Mainiac” when speaking, but if you are writing it out you need to spell it “MAINEIAC”…
    Ayuh, I’m a native Mainer and proud to call myself a Maineiac. I live in beautiful downeast Maine.

    Maine sounds like a great place! Over the years, I have had several teachers and friends from Maine and when I was in 5th grade, I became enchanted by New England as a whole. But Maine, in particular, stands out thanks to all the beautiful photographs and stories I have heard from others who have lived there. They can’t wait to ‘go home’ and I can’t wait to see if I want to make it ‘my home’ too.
