Skowhegan, ME to Rangeley to the NH Mountains
Started the day early with a trip up to the annual Skowhegan Agricultural Fair. Always fun to walk around and see the 4H kids with their super clean, well trained livestock. Good grilled hot dogs at the fire departments booth and then a trek through wilderness over to Rangeley lakes area. I'd remembered years ago before Rangeley got all the gift shops so we didn't walk around very much. The old Rangeley Inn was still pretty much like it was in the early 1900s. We were headed to a campground on Capusic Lake but didn't like the looks of it at all so kept going over into NH. Found a super campground right on a small mountain lake. Tomorrow we head down to St. Gaudens National Historic Site for a tour of the sculptures and gardens and to pick up Joe's Golden Age National Park Pass. !!
