This is part of the "Hello From The United States!" series of boxes.

One of the things Maine is known for is their many lighthouses. Take a hike up the Mt. Olympus Trailhead, and you'll feel like you've climbed to the top of one. :)

Directions: Climb up the "stairs" to the top of the first climb. Head over to the lookout point on the left, where Interstate 215 stretches from each side of the rocky outcropping. From the viewpoint, find a trail that goes along the side of the main mountain, heading north. When you are lined up with an east-west neighborhood road on the other side of I-215, you should be standing on a large pile of rocks and boulders. Look under the largest boulder for what smaller rocks are hiding.
