109. Firey Foliage: Mount Hope from Mount Agamenticus Fire Tower
The Mount Agamenticus region covers nearly 30,000 acres (121 km²) in the southern Maine towns of Eliot, Ogunquit, South Berwick, Wells and York. It is now a park reservation which provides both habitat for wildlife and venue for recreation.
Mount Agamenticus is also affectionately known as "Big A," the former ski slope's nickname. Not high as mountains go at 692 feet (211 m) above sea level, but from its peak on a clear day one can see the skyscrapers of Boston to the south, Cape Elizabeth and the entrance to Casco Bay to the north and the Presidential Range, including Mount Washington, to the west. Looking out to sea, the Isles of Shoals - about 10 miles (16 km) off York and Boon Island - about 6 miles (10 km) from the coast are also clearly visible.
