Photographer Kindra Clineff spent countless hours and many early mornings last summer traversing the Bold Coast trail in Cutler, Maine. Her photographs capture the pristine beauty of the Maine woods and coast. The trail is laid out like a figure eight and covers almost 10 miles of rugged inland paths and offers stunning coastal vistas. A long-time contributor to the magazine, we are happy to share more of Kindra’s work in this slide show.
