It was pouring rain when we left Vermont. We travelled on 2E to 16N through the northern part of New Hampshire until we crossed over the border into rural Maine.
We had a reservation at Black Brook Cove RV Park, located on Aziscohos Lake off Route 16 between Oquossoc and Wilsons Mills Maine. We were about 30 miles from the Canadian border.
When we arrived, nobody was around. They had left us a map showing our site #22, electric and water hookup only.
Just below our site was the You could tell that the water level must have been higher at some point. The wooden stairs leading down to the water were deteriorating.
We took a walk on a trail through the campground. We came upon a boat ramp and several old, metal canoes, which you cannot see in this picture. It was hard to tell if this place was run down or if it just looked this way because it was out of season. I think some repairs were in order.
Another few hundred yards along the trail, we came upon a deserted cabin. It saddened me to see what had become of what may have been a thriving summer cabin. Did someone live here or was it a rental? I was obsessed with taking pictures of what I saw while imagining what once was.
The next morning, we took a short drive looking for a trailhead, not sure that we had found it. Since there was no cellular service, we couldn’t track it. We returned to the trailer, and just hung out reading books. Tomorrow, we are heading to Baxter State Park to hike Mount Katahdin.
