Great Blue Heron along Route 1.
Sculpture by Jesse Salisbury at entrance to Bartlett Winery, Maine's first, established 25 years ago.
Good talk with the owner, Kathe and some nice wines tasted - Peach, Blueberry and Mead. All of the wines I sampled were dry varieties and all were excellent.

A couple of more sculptures, these in Milbridge. Many of the sculptures I've seen are from the 2007 Schoodic International Sculpture Symposium sponsored by Schoodic Arts for All. It is a bienniel event. I'd love to be up here when they host the 2009 symposium.
Information about the 2007 Symposium can be found here.

Larch, or Tamarack, needles, PMNWR. One of my favorite conifers. The needles turn golden in autumn and then drop off, to be replaced every spring. I believe this is the only conifer to do that.
Yellowthroat at PMNWR. Their song, heard often on this journey, is "witchery, witchery, witchery witch."
PMNWR. Typical scenery since getting downeast.
Lobstermen setting out a line of traps.
This red squirrel kept just ahead of me on the trail, stopping to pose for pictures. PMNWR
Another nice campsite, this time at Sunset Point Campground, a few miles south of Harrington.
Pleasant and peaceful.
