At the start of Parmachenee Road off Route 16 in Lincoln Plantatin ME.

The turn-off to Bose Buck Road from Parmachenee Road.

Aziscohos Lake.

Bosebuck Mountain Cabins and Campgrounds.

Paddling straight out westward from launch.

Amazing all these sandy beaches all around.

Veering to my right, the plan is to get to the eastern shore then southwards.

The eastern shore now on my left and heading southwards.

Every inch of the shore is a potential landing spot. Nice.

The cove on my left has some cars on the beach.

Skipping the cove on my left, I will instead go near that island on the right half of this picture.

The island now on my right, will hug the coast of this island.

Looking to my left, the eastern shore of Aziscohos Lake.

I have now reached the southern end of this island.

Looking south, I decided I will not go farther south and will now turn around.

Turning to my right, I was not sure how far it will be if go arround the island.

The island now in front of me again, I decided to go to the right of the island taking the same route on my way back (ie, west side of the island).

Now back to where I can see the Bosebuck cabins where I launched from.

A pair of loons in front of me.
