beautiful scenery as we stopped for a break to stretch our legs & read up on history of the area. We looked around & snapped pics in more like a video.

Having visited many of Maine's largest lakes, I have always enjoyed the views on Mooselook the most. Because the lake is large, the spectacular scenery reminds me of being on the ocean but being surrounded by mountains that are just far enough in the distance creates beautiful sunrises and sunsets that I have cherished for years now. The sandy beaches, steep rocky cliffs and cool clear water all add to this lakes reputation. Because it is not easy to get to, boat traffic is light even on a weekend and since PWC's are banned, the lake is quiet. Although there are small built up sections lined up with camps, there are also the Maine Public Reserve Land sections that are heavily forested and pristine. It is the pine covered shores, uninhabited hidden coves and small islands in these land preserve areas that help make Mooselookmeguntic more peaceful than its neighbor Rangeley. Hopefully, this lake will continue to be respected as it is and not be overdeveloped so that it remains a reflection of an uncommon and unique wilderness for all to enjoy-not just those with a million dollars!

The history of summers in Maine can be seen along the shores of Mooselookmeguntic. One shore is lined with traditional Maine "camps". These are not the camps that are full of kids and their counselors. The traditional Maine camp is a summer home or second home. These can range from a log cabin to a palace. The summer houses along the shore of Mooselook are a little different from many Maine lakes. Winter ice would tear up structures along the lake shore. These camps solved the problem with slanted pilings to allow the ice to expand. You'll see these in front of many camps.There are also a lot of boat houses that can no longer be built on the shore. These look like garages over the water where a boat can be stored and secured.

This is massive and beautiful lake that reflects the glory of a Creator God. The order of the universe is clearly displayed.
