"Baker Mountain in #Maine doesn't crack the top of the list of New England's 100 tallest peaks. But it certainly has stage presence. A full third taller than the 2 mountains on either side of it, and twice as wide, Baker looms large on its home turf. @scramp photographed the mountain as seen from a wooden dock on Little Lyford Pond, in the heart of the Maine North Woods. "People get super excited once they see it from the pond. And they immediately want to go to the top," said Casey Mealey, a guide who accompanied the @nytimestravel writer Gustave Axelson on a trip up #BakerMountain. Last year, the Appalachian Mountain Club purchased the mountain and its surrounding 4,300 acres of former timberlands. Amenities like marked hiking trails are in the works, but still a couple of years away. So for now, Baker is only for experts at backcountry trekking." By nytimes on Instagram.
