Geography [link]

To the south and east is the Atlantic Ocean and to the north and northeast is New Brunswick. a province of Canada. The Canadian province of Quebec is to the northwest.

Maine is both the northernmost state in New England and the largest, accounting for nearly half the region’s entire land area. Maine has the distinction of being the only state to border just one other state (New Hampshire to the west). Maine is the easternmost state in the United States both in terms of its extreme points and its geographic center.

The municipalities of Eastport and Lubec are, respectively, the easternmost city and town in the United States. Estcourt Station is Maine’s northernmost point, as well as the northernmost point in New England. (For more information see extreme points of the United States ).

Maine has several unique geographical features. Machias Seal Island and North Rock. off its easternmost point, are claimed by both the U.S. and Canada and are within one of four areas between the two countries whose sovereignty is still in dispute. but it is the only one of the disputed areas containing land. Also in this easternmost area is the Old Sow. the largest tidal whirlpool in the Western Hemisphere .

Maine is the least densely populated U.S. state east of the Mississippi River. It is called the Pine Tree State ; nearly 90% of its land is forested. [ 7 ] In the forested areas of the interior lie much uninhabited land, some of which does not have formal political organization into local units (a rarity in New England). The Northwest Aroostook, Maine unorganized territory in the northern part of the state, for example, has an area of 2,668 square miles (6,910#160;km 2 ) and a population of 27, or one person for every 100 square miles (260#160;km 2 ).

Maine has almost 230 miles (400#160;km) of coastline (and 3,500 miles (5,600#160;km) of tidal coastline). [ 9 ] [ 10 ] West Quoddy Head is the easternmost piece of land in the contiguous 48 United States. Along the famous rock-bound coast of Maine are lighthouses, beaches, fishing villages, and thousands of offshore islands, including the Isles of Shoals. which straddle the New Hampshire border. There are jagged rocks and cliffs and many bays and inlets.

Inland are lakes, rivers, forests, and mountains. This visual contrast of forested slopes sweeping down to the sea has been summed up by American poet Edna St. Vincent Millay of Rockland and Camden. Maine in Renascence:
