Watching Mother Nature's fireworks show from the summit of Burnt Mountain.
This year, the Fourth of July fell on a Tuesday. If you were lucky, you received the gift of a long, four day weekend to kick back, relax, and celebrate the birth of our great nation. While there was no shortage of fireworks, parades, and red snapper hotdogs here in Maine, plenty of Mainers broke off from the classic traditions and got crafty with their time off - hiking, biking, canoeing, camping, and exploring every last nook and cranny of the best state in the country (we consider that statement to be an indisputable fact).
We want to know - how did you choose to celebrate the Fourth here in Maine? Tag us in your photos on Instagram, and we'll feature some of our favorite posts right here next week. And of course, bonus points if you included LiveME swag!
