April 27, 2019 – Viles Arboretum – Maine

Today Shadow, Wilma, and I Adventured to Viles Arboretum in Augusta, Maine.  Viles Arboretum is made up of 224 acres of property including six miles of trails, gardens, an art/sculpture trail, and many special events and activities.  There is a Visitor Center and a gift shop which are open during week days.

We had a drenching Adventure to the Viles Arboretum on yet another dreary New England day.  I was excited to find the Arboretum, a location that many times is not open to my furry friends.  Upon arrival we were disappointed to find the trail maps were gone, so decided to stroll around and see what we could find.  There were numerous sculptures that captured our attention and guided us on our walk.  We ambled along the paths, sinking into thick water and mud.  However, we did not let this stop us and continued on checking out the art and landscape along the way.  There were vibrant signs identifying what soon will be lots of green and flowering areas.  There were gorgeous birch trees, tulips, forsythias, and a large white flowering tree.  There were many labels for trails, yet without a map it was not clear as where they may lead.  The Arboretum appeared to be endless with trails in many directions.  We spent about an hour walking, and exploring.  I am positive that the Viles Arboretum will be quite breathtaking as the buds bloom.  It was definitely a unique spot which we hope to explore again in the future (Rating:  3).
