Northern Maine Camping Trip

We took the Munchkin camping for the first time a few weeks ago. I have so many pictures I have been meaning to share with you!! We stayed on a lake in the shadow of Mt. Katahdin. It's such a good feeling to ditch the computer and phone and head out to a place where you can guarantee some solitude. 
Red Brook. The moose who came out to our campsite would travel down this stream to come to the lake. 
See the moose track (above)??
I woke up early one morning and got some pictures of land around our campsite.
We had some doggy friends join us on the trip. 

We had some other friends as well:

We spent some quality time around the campfire. 
But first, we had to get it started. This trick was ingenious....should your campfire be too soaked to start can always utilize your air pump (once you have filled your mattress):
Good thinking, Dad. :-)

We saw an amazing moon rise as well:

Of course, we sang some songs around the campfire. 
We skinny dipped (sorry, no pictures!!) :-p
And, then we retired to our tents each night. If only we had some bedroom furniture sets to fit our tents, right?? Well, the air mattress had to do for a couple nights. It was definitely worth a few days of uncomfortable sleep in trade for the peace and solitude of a campsite in northern Maine. 


  1. Gorgeous photos seems like a lovely trip...the two parts that really made me smile are the cast-iron skillet and the loons.

    I also like the innovative method for starting the fire...

  2. I love the pictures... I had to do a double take with the dog. With the dogs tongue over the end of his nose, at first I thought it was a pig.

  3. Maine is one state I have always wanted to visit. Maybe in the fall, my favorite season. Thanks for sharing your photos!
