The weather last weekend was really gorgeous so we took advantage of it. We spent it at Byron again. This time B joined us. Though it took a little convincing because B also knows that camping with Daddy means gold panning which means he will be bored all day waiting for him to be done with his thingy in the river. LOL

We left Friday afternoon so we can have the whole day Saturday exploring the river. But we ended up driving around Rangeley all day instead. Sweetest wanted to find another river to explore this time. It was kinda exciting because we were able to stop at a couple of scenic overlooks along the way.

The day was full of adventure if you consider being lost in the wilderness an adventure. We were trying to locate Cupsuptic River. We didn't find it until later that day. We drove around Cupsuptic Area and explored every dirt road we found. We stopped every now and then to do some metal detecting. It was for me a father-and-son moment.

When we found the elusive river, B and I went on a little hike by the river. We stayed there for just an hour and just explored the river. B and I did a little hiking and he also took a little foot dipping in the cold river water.

As for me, I aside from taking tons of pictures, I did what I always do when we are on the road... tailgate cooking.

On our way home, we stopped again at the Height of the Land Scenic Overlook and played paparazzi to a couple getting married at the magnificent scenic overlook.
