Majestic Autumn Maple Tree in Ellsworth, Maine
Nothing says New England, and specifically Maine, like this large maple tree in full autumn bloom next to an old rock wall in Ellsworth, Maine. This would be a great place to sit, lean against the tree and read a book. Over a century ago, people cleared their fields of the many rocks and boulders deposited by continental glaciers so that they may better farm the land and define their borders. Few people today appreciate how much work this really was.
