A visit to Baxter State Park is a must for photographers going to Millinocket. Entry is strictly regulated and no pets are allowed inside the park. I had to leave my dog in my rented cabin for the day I went to BSP. Once in the park, there is a short, wet hike to edge of the lake. You will be mesmerized by the clean air, fresh water and peaceful ambience. If its a day with a mix of clouds and sun, you will be in luck as the weather moves fast in this high country and the changes are very dramatic.
Make sure you have your tripod, polarizer and ND filters to get the best out of the high contract light.
