B is for Baxter State Park

bI hope you’re all enjoying the amenities on the Eclectic Express – we want you to be comfortable!

If you look out your windows you’ll see the majestic Mount Katahdin.  Located in Baxter State Park in Maine (United States), Mount Katahdin marks the northern end of the Appalachian Trail.


The best way to see the park is to hike around, so we’ll stop here for a while to allow you to walk around some.  Even those of us who are not in the best hiking-shape can enjoy pieces of the park.  Be sure to keep an eye out for the wildlife – the moose, at least, are not terribly shy.

There are plenty of lakes to explore, and of course you’re welcome to remain in the train and enjoy the views from the comfort of the indoors.

    1. It helps that the Eclectic Express doesn’t confine itself to the boundaries of actual train tracks — but writing this journey is making me wish there were train-equivalents to cruises! Such a great way to travel!

  1. On my bucket list is to hike the Appalachian Trail, but as I looked closer at it, it seemed like many parts of it were not very long, chopped up by urban growth. It looks Like Baxter in Maine would be a great place to start, and enjoy the wilderness. thanks for the gorgeous photos. Gail at Making Life An Art


    1. Maine has a lot that is really beautiful and wild! I have hiked.. uhm, less than a half mile of the Appalachian Trail, because I’ve never actually been in shape enough to make it even to Chimney Pond… but I LOVE Baxter. 🙂

  2. What a beautiful place! If I ever find myself up Maine way, I’ll have to give it a visit! (Goodness knows, I could use the hiking; I haven’t really been hiking in…yikes…twenty+ years…)
