MONHEGAN ISLAND, MAINE - AUGUST 02: Fog lingers through the trees of Cathedral Woods August 2, 2000 on Monhegan Island, Maine. These woods have been certified as a rainforest because of the high moisture content. Monhegan Island, home to lobstermen and painters and a popular destination for tourists is twelve miles off the coast of Maine. Ringed by high, dark cliffs, its interior a mix of meadows, marsh and spruce groves, Monhegan is one of just 14 true island communities left off the coast of Maine. The island has a 65 permanent, year-round residents and the population grows to around 200 in the summer, with day-trippers adding several hundred more. (Photo by Amy Toensing)
