Larger than the states
of Rhode Island and Delaware combined, Washington County, Maine
lies at the eastern tip of the United States - hence its nickname,
the Sunrise County. Within its borders exists one of
the largest tracts of unspoiled semi-wilderness remaining in the
continental U.S. With most of its population clustered in small
towns and villages along the coast, the interior remains largely
unsettled; over 2 1/2 thousand square miles of canoeable waterways;
from isolated lakes and streams to challenging whitewater rivers.
Wildlife is abundant, including such celebrated species as the loon,
moose, bald eagle, black bear, and others. But unlike many other
areas of comparable beauty in the country, Washington County, due
to its relatively remote location, has been spared the onslaught
of touring campers. Largely unpublicized, the many canoe routes
are used by a comparative few. It was here that Sunrise originated
in the early seventies - and it's still our home.
