There is just something special about listening to the birds sing all day and call of the loons, seeing wildlife, moose watching, seeing a fox wandering down the road, hiking a mountain trail, or just floating effortlessly about in Moosehead Lake while taking a refreshing swim. How about the feeling the freedom of kayaking the lake without any cares of anyone asking something of you?   Maine wildflowers, mushrooms, and native plants cover the forest floor during the spring, summer and fall and a blanket of snow sparkles like white diamonds in the winter.
