Lakes Aplenty

By Linda Tancs

To call Rangely, Maine a “lake district” is surely an understatement.  This western part of the state is embraced by 112 interconnected lakes and ponds scattered throughout the region, the centerpiece of which is Rangeley Lake.  A quiet village, Rangely can boast of two unusual things:  no traffic light and a sign in town that places it midway between the Equator and the North Pole.  Clearly a boater’s paradise in summer, year-round recreational activities include fishing, hiking, skiing, snowmobiling, wildlife watching, and leaf peeping.  Add to that:  watching the sunset over Mooselookmeguntic Lake.  Awesome.
