Spring Comes to Camden

Posted by: Anita Zeno

Well, it’s definitely spring in Camden and on the Midcoast of Maine! Warm(ish) with clear blue skies on Monday, so we mowed for the first time this year. Tuesday, thank goodness I was home so I could bring in all the potted plants I’d put out because it snowed! And today, Wednesday, the plants are back outside, the sun is shining and the tulips are beginning to bloom! What a roller coaster ride.

Speaking of rides, the Camden Snow Bowl is going to begin offering chair lift rides on summer and fall weekends. And bike rentals, including mountain bike rentals, on holidays and every Monday during the same months. The Camden Snow Bowl is a small, community-owned ski area in Camden, Maine, located about 4.5 miles from the town of Camden on Penobscot Bay. And it’s not just a winter play area anymore. Pick up a picnic lunch at French & Brawn or Camden Deli and spend the day hiking/biking/or gazing out to sea from the top of 1300’ tall Ragged Mountain. Sounds like a glorious day to me!
