Have you visited the Saddleback Webcams? With three cameras scattered across the mountain, you’re guaranteed to get the best sunset. Plus, you can go back in time if you missed the best part. Thankfully, I was lucky enough to catch the following photo. Visit the link below and get your Saddleback Sunset Fix!
Have you ever wanted a 360-degree view of a sunset in the Western Maine mountains? Take a trip up to the summit of Quill Hill. With picnic tables at the top, even lunch up there is spectacular! For more information, click on their website!
Saddleback Mountain Biking:
Last summer, Saddleback opened up its own mountain biking trails on the mountain. This summer they are back with lift-serviced downhill mountain biking accessed via the South Branch Quad. Saddleback officials say they expect the lift to start spinning around late July. For more information, click the link below.
What a nice week to be outside in Maine. Myself and many others rocked t-shirts this week. In fact, I might have to take a dip in Rangeley Lake! Friday, the nice weather will continue, however, Saturday and Sunday look like possible thunderstorms.
Thanks for the beautiful weather, Mother Nature!
