November is the time to toughen up for the cold months ahead. It takes some doing because a temperature around 40º Fahrenheit that felt downright balmy back in March feels a mite chilly in November after several months of soothing warmth.

The Maine I Love - Photographs by Andrea Hand

Bangor-based artist and photographer Andrea Hand specializes in events and portraits. A visit to this private fishing camp in Northern Maine inspired her to add landscapes to her repertoire. “I have lived in Maine for 26 years, but until last year had never participated in the ‘camp’ lifestyle. When folks talked about ‘going to camp,’ I thought they were talking about a week away at some kind of summer camp. Then last summer I was invited to an 1890s fishing camp for a late-season jaunt. As we turned off the logging road and across the small bridge onto the site, my soul was flooded with the spirit of this sacred place.

Fishing and the Rangeley Boat

The iconic Rangeley Boat emerged from the Rangeley Lake region of Western Maine in the 1800s and was crafted to suit the needs of sportfishermen.
