Maine's beauty lies in its rawness. Tart wild blueberries. Hills rising from Camden's rocky shores. Centuries-old roads that hug the shoreline, connecting village to village. Morning mist on Penobscot Bay. Even a delicacy like Maine lobster still involves shells and claws. It's raw. It's true. It's Maine.
