Ossipee Hill, Waterboro ME Highlights: None what so ever! Near: East Waterboro, ME Scenery: Distance: 3.5 miles round trip Elevation Gain: 514 ft Hike Time: 2 hours Difficulty: Moderate Trail Condition: Fire road/pavement HikeType: Out and Back www.localhikes.com/Hikes/OssipeeMtn_0000.asp Here's one review which explains why he is reading. Actually he was hiking with me, and with those long legs and youth on his side had time to stop and wait. I am much more of a gawker on a hike, and like to take my time and enjoy things like those lovely asters in the foreground. The farm is completely overgrown, although the McLucases were a prominent family in this area in the 1800s. When we made this hike, the views were better, the road wasn't paved, and there was a grave or two of civil war veterans along the way. Changes are not always for the better.

Took this right after our storm cleared out today on my way home from work. I really need to try this shot again with my camera mounted on my tripod. Not completely satisfied with the detail of it enlarged, but I think I can squeeze out a 5x15 pano with no problem. You can also view at: sharedperspectivesphotography.zenfolio.com/

Bunganut Pond Lyman, Maine This is my first long exposure on the Konica. I left the shutter open for about 6 minutes through my purely scientific technique of making my nieces count to 60 with me a few times while we roasted marshmallows and ate s'mores. Highly recommended long exposure technique.

These onion rings simply rock. The batter is incredible, almost like the rings are wrapped in crepe. Update: My wife wasn't all that impressed with the onion rings. Apparently the batter wasn't that great for her.

American Bacon Burger. A bit of a disappointment. The burger was burned and well done and dry (I asked for medium). The crinkle cut fries were frozen. I was soo hoping for fresh cut fries.
