it’s the cooler weather, but I’ve been thinking a lot about one of my favorite places recently – Saddleback Mountain in Rangeley, Maine. Growing up, my family did the trek 4 hours north pretty much every weekend in the winter time and never thought anything of it. We’d spend the weekend skiing and enjoying life without a TV. Rangeley’s an awesome place, a quiet town and not totally easy to get to, but the terrain is unbeatable. Saddleback has everything from beginner trails to glades skiing. Not to mention, the views of the Lakes Region are spectacular. Most importantly, it’s a great escape.
