Armchair photo tours: Moose watching near Millinocket, Maine

Photos by Cheryl Landes

Millinocket is in Maine’s North Woods and a great place to see moose in their natural habitat. The pictures in today’s armchair photo tour are from one of my weekend trips to Millinocket to go hiking at Baxter State Park, 17 miles north of town. I went on a tour with Moose Woods Guide Service, an early evening exploration along the Golden Road west of town.


The Golden Road has some beautiful panoramas of the Penobscot River and Mt. Katahdin in Baxter State Park.
