Encyclopedia

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Maine Lake Country is a region of the U.S. state of Maine commonly including Oxford, Franklin, Somerset, Piscataquis, Penobscot, and Aroostook. Some notable towns are Norway, Farmington, Madison, Dover-Foxcroft, Bangor, and Houlton. The Wisconsin Glaciation over the local Appalachian Mountains left behind eroded ridges and scoured lowlands with numerous lakes, ponds, and bogs connected by rivers, which provide habitats for dense pine and spruce forests, inhabited by ample populations of moose, loons, and wildflowers. The Maine Lake Country is a popular area for hunting and fishing. It also has a substantial timber industry which once ran huge log drives. Hikers can either start or complete the Appalachian Trail at its northernmost point at Mount Katahdin.
