A true American Conundrum
The Desert of Maine
95 Desert Rd., Freeport ME 04032
DESERT noun \ˈde-zərt\ - arid land with usually sparse vegetation;
less than 10 inches of rainfall annually.
|Me and my wonderful parents in the middle of the desert.|
I was most amazed by the pine trees growing out
of the sand.
Bill was not a great farmer, tired potatoes, tried raising sheep yet all he ended up doing was ruining the shallow land the letting the glacier desert sand pop up. BUT, Bill was a true American. When he figured out that if he couldn’t make a living farming, he would make a living by having people pay admission to see his emerging desert!!
I have to say that this stop was great for people of all ages, interesting, educational and just plain different. Defiantly worth the stop.
