At Over 300 Years Old, Some Of The Oldest Trees Are Found In Maine
In a state with so much history, we really never have a problem finding a subject when we want to take a step into the past. There are haunted hotels, museums full of artifacts, and tons of stories that are passed down from generation to generation. But one of the things we like the most is how much history is found within nature.
To see a great example of this, we’re taking an internet trip to Aroostook County today! That’s where you’ll see one of the best examples of Old Growth Forests.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/

Michelle has lived in many places, but counts Maine as one of the best. In addition to the smell of ocean water in the air on rainy days in Portland, she loves puppies, photography, funny people, the Maine Red Claws, traveling, fresh tomatoes, Cambodia and filling out forms.
