Well Dressed in Moosehead Lake, Maine

While we love trying new things, when it comes to travel, we tend to return to the same spots that we’ve fallen in love with over the years. One year ago when we first visited Moosehead Lake in Maine, this B & B became close to our hearts. We first visited The Blair Hill Inn on a whim and it’s where I shot my very first blog photos. So, our return trip this year was a “Happy 1st Birthday” celebration for my blog and also a chance to soak in the beauty you’ll see below in my photos. As creatures of habit, we again hiked a mountain and did another moose safari. Click here to view my blog post from our first visit one year ago. Next I’ll be posting another outfit from our stop in Maine followed by a post on the final stop on our roadtrip – Vermont. Thank you for reading!

Be well xo

Our hike up Big Moose Mountain (2,000 ft elevation gain with views of Moosehead Lake at the top). Old house about 1/4 of the way up the mountain.

I always do some sort of inversion at the top. The ledge was a little too narrow for a handstand!

The moose safari was great! This year we saw 3 females (cows) and one male (bull). They have amazing smell and hearing but terrible eyesight which allows you to get quite close to the females (25-50 yards away). The males, however, were gone before we got any closer than 300 yards both last year and this year. Hence the terrible photo of the male….this was with a great lens too. The first cow we saw was quite young (2 years) and not afraid to relieve herself in front of the camera.

They love the inland lakes because the greenery at the bottom is super salty and has tons of calcium.

The male from very far away…

We also saw some Canadian loons – mom, dad and two babies. Their call was beautiful! Look it up if you’ve never heard it before. Apparently it’s a sound people travel thousands of miles to hear. Fun fact: loons live their whole life with the same partner.

The best for last: what I wore! Madewell vest (on sale! and also styled here); James Perse t-shirt (mine is from Intermix and is a super light grey color – wasn’t on their website); Jerome Dreyfuss bag (old but LOVE this one); Current/Elliott jeans; Schutz shoes
