This much is true: Maine is sohot.

Right now, in fact.

It was true two summers ago when I was there on my honeymoon, and it is true even still, as I am tingling with anticipation for our trip there next week. All of it is so hot — the gorgeous hikes with the gorgeous views, the delicious absence of chain stores & restaurants, the icy lakes, the melt-in-your-mouth lobstah. Ohhhh, the lobstahhh!

We depart on Tuesday. Meanwhile, I am savoring los fotos from 2010. More here.

Long story short, go visit. Specifically, go to Mt. Desert Island.

That is all.
