Desert of Maine

Who would've thought...a desert in the middle of Maine!
The story goes that a glacier once glided through here leaving this silt behind which is even 
finer than beach sand. After years of over use by the farmer Mr Tuttle the silt 
started to rise to the top of the farming soil and slowly took over the entire farm.  
The house was eventually over taken by the sand and was fully covered.

Take a walk through the trails or take a ride...whatever your liking.
Keep your eyes peeled for shining mica spec hidden in the sand.
...Very interesting!
