Majestic Autumn Maple Tree in Ellsworth, Maine

Nothing says New England, and specifically Maine, like a large maple tree in full autumn bloom next to an old rock wall in Ellsworth, Maine. Over a century ago, people cleared their fields of the many rocks and boulders deposited by continental glaciers so that they may better farm the land and define their borders. Few people today appreciate how much work this really was.
