We did stop at a couple of lookout points along the highway and took these pictures of Rangley Lake. I actually expected to see more color in the mountains, and alot of the trees were already bare, so we must have missed the peak after all.
Our last stop for the day was Coos Canyon in Byron, Maine. It's a small canyon that the Swift River runs through; and where the rocks cause the river to narrow, the water just boils through the canyon. We visited here a couple of years ago and were able to climb on the rocks and get much closer to the water. Now they have a fence up and you can't get down in there anymore. I don't know if someone fell into the canyon or what. Anyway, we did get a little bit closer on the top end of the canyon and got a picture of this tree, just growing up out of the rock. The base of the tree looks like the same texture as the rock.
