Encyclopedia > Maine Lake Country

The Maine Lake Country is a region of the U.S. state of Maine commonly including Oxford County, Franklin County, Somerset County, Piscataquis County, Penobscot County, and Aroostook County. Some notable towns there are Norway, Farmington, Madison, Dover-Foxcroft, Bangor, and Houlton. The Wisconsin Glaciation over the local Appalachian Mountains left behind eroded ridges and scoured lowlands with numerous lakes, ponds, and bogs connected by rivers which provide habitats for dense pine and spruce forests inhabited by ample populations of moose, loons, and wildflowers. The Maine Lake Country is also a popular area for hunting and fishing, has a substantial timber industry which once ran huge log drives, and is home to the northernmost leg of the Appalachian Trail along which hiking may start or finish at Mount Katahdin. Region can be used to mean either: any more or less well-defined geographical area of a country or continent, defined by geography, culture or history in political geography, an administrative subdivision of a country or of the European Union. ...
