One thing I never tire of are beautiful sunsets. Does anybody? I remember hearing someone say that the amount of sunrises and sunsets a person views might tell a lot about them. I would think the AT hikers would agree with that statement. Either way, it certainly doesn’t get old in these parts with so many great vantage points.

Thanks goes to Donna Estes for sharing this moment with The Rangeley Highlander on our Facebook Page with the caption- “Our beautiful 9 mos old granddaughter, Mia and her first trip to Rangeley to see the amazing sunsets!”

What a precious moment to capture. I know a lot of people have been hiking and taking advantage of our beautiful area to forget about all of our problems and take pleasure in our natural wonders.  To spend any amount of time here, especially during this time, we certainly are fortunate.

After 8:30, when the sun sets nowadays, there are those that go straight to the screen. Recently I’ve been spending a lot of the time touching base with family and friends. Everyone wants to check in on one another and see if there is anything they need and how they are holding up. When all of the important stuff is out of the way the question inevitably comes up. So find anything good to watch? I have heard this question I don’t know how many times. However, I did realize that it was nice to hear about shows I might not have come across. After all, it’s nice to look outside your own literal box once in a while…and so I put it out on social media. Here are some of the responses. Thought it might be interesting and to me I definitely found some that I will try out! In my house we have a 5 minute test… If after 5 minutes it doesn’t intrigue me in some way, we move on…
