Paint the town: 6 Mile Lake
If you recall, before the heavens opened up on us with Super Soakers few days ago, we were having quite a heat wave. I was even told it was balmy by Maine standards. So blisteringly hot, in fact, that some Mainers were crazy enough to go for a swim… outside… in water that has got to be, what, 2 degrees?!?! Ok, I may be exaggerating. All I know is that if anything’s going to stop my heart, I’d rather it be a really good kiss instead of freezing cold water.
Kissing aside, there is a huge, beautiful lake tucked away in what I like to refer to as the Machias ‘burbs. Needless to say, it was too cold for me to dive in, but that didn’t stop Zack and Taylor!
6 Mile Lake is off of 192 and past Marks’ Lake. There are two entrances on the right hand side of the road with a row of mailboxes in between. Be warned, it’s easy to miss. Once you enter the parking lot, walk the path on the right hand side. You’ll pass a cabin and a trailer and eventually you’ll reach the rocks. Please be careful and jump at your own risk!
