Maine: Images of the Pine Tree State (33 photos)

Although Maine is the largest of the New England states, it is still relatively small—ranking 39th in area. It remains a state with a low population density, with just about 1.3 million residents, mostly living near the southern coast. From its wooded interior to its rocky shoreline, here are a few glimpses of the landscape of Maine and some of the wildlife and people calling it home.

This photo story is part of Fifty, a collection of images from each of the United States.
