Day Two

Awaken refreshed to a full American Breakfast included at the hotel. With your local guide, travel just a short distance to the Maine Mineralogy Expedition where you will explore Bumpus Mine. The Bumpus Mine became famous in the early 1900’s when it produced the world’s largest Beryl Crystal, now resting at the Museum of Natural History in New York City.  The crystal is nearly 4’ in diameter, 6’ long, and weighs two tons! Next we travel to the Bethel Outdoor Adventure Center and enjoy sluicing for your own special, rare mineral. This  region is so very rich in minerals such as tourmaline and rose quartz. You never know what you’ll find, and anything you find, you keep!   Enjoy lunch and shopping on your own in Bethel. Bethel offers an authentic entrepreneurial shopping experience, selling exquisite and one-of-a-kind items for one to enjoy. After lunch, enjoy a short tour with a member of the Bethel Historical Society.  We return to the resort where you can enjoy a little relaxation, in preparation for your moose safari at dusk. A traditional Maine Bean Hole Dinner is served this evening.  Following dinner begin your moose safari with a local moose naturalist who will

teach you the facts on these great animals. The locales you will visit are known places where the moose congregate at dusk! Return to your resort for dessert, coffee/tea and to share the experiences of the day’s adventures.  (B,D)
