Weekend Adventure....Mt. Kineo!

Last night we got back from an extra long weekend visiting Moosehead Lake.  We go every year and we absolutely love it there.  It is the perfect place to get away from it all and unplug and spend some real quality time as a family.

This year we canoed, fished, swam and played lots of board games together.  It was wonderful.  In years past we have boated to Mt. Kineo but we have never hiked but this year we decided to hike to the top and I am so glad we did.  The hike took about 3 hours round trip and it was wonderful.  We saw rabbits, grouse and the most beautiful scenery.  There were a few spots that made me a bit nervous but the kids did amazing and I was so  proud of them!!  Hiking as a family is one of my new favorite pass times with them.  There is something about tackling a mountain together that brings you close together with a sense of   pride and accomplishment.  I can't wait for our next adventure!

If you are interested in learning more about Mount Kineo you can visit the State of Maine website here.  I have lots of great photos from our long weekend and will try and post some more later but if you are considering a trip to the Mooshead area, I would highly recommend Wilson's. This family run cabin rental compound is amazing and you won't be disappointed.  Visit Wilson's here.
