Ashland, Portage Lake, Marsardis....

....Maine, in the middle of Aroostook County,
lumber is the game, and the hunting bounty;
the mill in Masardis can cut 140 million board feet a day,
but the Ashland mill is closed, Canadian imports don't make pay.

there are 8.3 million acres of woods up here,
and agricultural land is abundant and clear;
you can grow potatoes, broccoli, or cut wood,
if you've never been here, well then, you should.

Top: Portage Lake, the lake not the town.
Middle: Farming in the snow; really it's grooming snowmobile trails
Bottom: Stacks at the Masardis mill.
