Abol Pond is located in Baxter State Park. The famous park is over 200,000 acres and was established in 1931.
The park was a gift to Maine from Gov. Percival P. Baxter. The park is heavily regulated, for instance alcohol is prohibited.
“The works of man are short-lived. Monuments decay, buildings crumble and wealth vanishes, but Katahdin in its massive grandeur will forever remain the mountain of the people of Maine. Throughout the ages it will stand as an inspiration to the men and women of the state.” – -Percival P. Baxter
Of course, I didn’t know all these facts about Baxter State Park, but a bit of research goes a long way.
Abol Pond is just one of the many ponds that are located in the park and as you can tell from the picture is pretty small.
