“The view from the forested slopes of Mount Battie straight down to the forest of masts in Camden Harbor is one of the most dramatic in New England — and never more beautiful than in fall,” writes Michael Blanding, author of the article. “For a closer look at the trees, hike nearby Mount Megunticook or Bald Rock Mountain.”IMG_0701

Of course, everyone who lives here already knows how beautiful Camden is in the Fall.  We would love you to experience the magnificent beauty for yourselves.  We hope to see you soon!
