Penobscot Narrows Observatory

As always I was longing to be in Maine again, having a hard time waiting for September. So I got out some of my recent Down East Magazines to see what new places I could possibly visit this year. We had stopped last year to go to the top of the Observatory ,but my sister,with her asthma and bad knee didn't think she could make the trek to get there. So I think I'll try it myself this year!!

The April issue had a wonderful article and some absolutely gorgeous photography by our own TA member Michele S. Beautiful work Michele!!! You have made me really want to get to the TOP!!!

By all means, go there. The observatory is worth the trip; the fort and grounds also are very nice.

Hi traveltoo,

I agree, go. The views from the observatory are wonderful. Do check out the fort while you are there. We were glad we did.

I have to agree that it is well worth it. We went to the top last August on a very clear day and the view was spectacular. Hope you get there!
