Apparently there are at least three or four Bald Mountains in Maine. If it was my nomination this is the one I meant...Not sure why the pictures are half supersized now. :? http://forum.hike-nh.com/viewtopic.php?f=14&t=8085

Bald Rock
Another roport of mine on this one, again, not sure what's up with the jumbo pics. Three of these nominees (and a couple others coming up I believe) are in the Camden Area, and shorter hikes, so if they make the list multiples can be bagged in a day to make it worth the trip. http://forum.hike-nh.com/viewtopic.php?t=7585

Battie
I'd say Battie with a suggested add on of Ocean Lookout. Maiden's cliff is nice too but a bit too far to require it as an add on I think. http://forum.hike-nh.com/viewtopic.php?t=6789

Black Mountain, East
Great hike that can be done in combo with Schoodic and/or a few others to, again, make it worth the drive. http://forum.hike-nh.com/viewtopic.php?f=14&t=9180

Blue
A bit Hazy, but great views from the communications tower. Clear to the Whites on a good day. You have to work for the view ledges if you don't want to use towers, but you can still find them. Don't know if it's flickr or this site but my appologies again for the poster size pics. http://forum.hike-nh.com/viewtopic.php?f=14&t=8808

Blueberry
There should probably be some sort of suggested route on this one as the best views are from everywhere but the summit, but I'm not sure what would be best exactly. The White Cairn, Lookout Loop perhaps, as Blueberry Ridge, while spectacular, doesn't offer up a lot different or better than the summit of Speckled, which should definitely make the cut eventually. http://forum.hike-nh.com/viewtopic.php?t=8651&p=81169

 Re: The list round 10.
Well, I know I have been consistently voting no to summits that need a tower for the view, but since technically the one on Blue is a cell tower the odds of it being closed like a firetower are probably much lower. So I think this round will get a unanimous yes from me as well. :D

 Re: The list round 10.
This is the part where I haven't been to most of them.

I don't have great pics and haven't been around the rest of the area to know what else is good/better/whatever, but I thought Battie was good and would recommend.

Blueberry is nice enough and I don't know that I'd actually oppose it or vote no, but to me it's kind of overshadowed/irrelevant in the shadow of Speckled, which I agree with GG is a total win.

Burnt Meadow was my nominee. It's one where the summit wasn't necessarily the highlight, but the whole hike was littered with beauty:

Ledge on the way up:

From the Summit:

From the Twin Brook Trail (the way down/back/complete the loop)

Note that JoeyKeyz I believe said this was his favorite spot EVAR!!! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=18EATYsoQxo
