Moving on along our motorcycle trip (read about our first stop here), we rode into Rangeley, Maine and stopped for a break. We decided to get some lunch because, unfortunately, I hadn’t eaten anything yet. Steve suggested a pub across the street from where we parked the bikes. The pub was called Sarge’s and I have to say, it was a decent lunch. We got all sorts of filled up and went on our merry way.
We rode through the rest of Rangeley and continued to head West on route 4/16. When we made it to Oquossoc (which was the coolest little place), we made a left to ride South on route 17. I think Steve wanted to show me some lookout points.
After a while climbing a few mountains, we stopped here:
The two pictures above are looking out over Rangeley Lake, which is fairly gorgeous. There were times the lake looked almost fake – with all the islands and mountains. Very nice area with just tons of activities, such as pontoon boat tours, boat and canoe rentals, camping, eating and all the rest. Vacation extraordinaire.
This is a sign that was situated in the parking lot. It describes the history of the area and how previous inhabitants traveled through the local lakes and rivers. If you care to read it, click the image.
And here we have another picture of the motorcycles. I think this is the last one.
After we left this particular lookout point, we rode some more and stopped at what people around here call, “Height of Land.” This is another lookout point where you can get a great view of Mooselookmeguntic Lake. Say that three times fast.
This area was awesome. When I get a chance, I plan on returning to show some people. Here is a somewhat weird video I found of the Height of Land. Even thought it’s wavy, you can get a pretty good idea of what things look like.
