2016 Rangeley trip, part four, the last in my series from our one day trip. There is a pretty little park in downtown Rangeley with a public boat launch and small swimming area. It goes by the name of “Lakeside Park” or “Riverside Park”. We usually stop here when in the area and always found it busy with people and a few ducks. However, this year it appeared geese had taken it over! I chuckled when I read the sign shown in my 1st photo. If you look closely at the 2nd photo you can see geese roaming around on land!
Our last stop where I took photos was at a rest area called “Smalls Falls” on Rt. 4. This is where I blundered, I should have researched the place online before we make the trip. There is so much more to be seen had I wandered the trails or climbed the steep cliff to look down on the falls area. Why didn’t I? There were no signs at the beginning of three trails I saw. The very steep cliff climb would have entailed maneuvering between lots of above ground tree roots. I do wish I had taken a photo of the roots, it was quite the sight.
From the parking lot I walked down two flights of stairs, then stepped out on the wooden bridge. This is what I saw looking one direction then the other.
Taking a few more steps, I stopped short, surprised at what I was looking at. I stood there thinking how it might look with water coming full force down those ledges and filling the basin.
And that was our 2016 Rangeley trip! I do hope you enjoyed my photos half as much as we enjoyed the day.
Thank you for stopping by. I hope you have enjoyed my photographs and videos, do come back again soon. Comments are always welcomed.
