BOISE, Idaho Solar-powered trackers on wings have recorded California condors soaring to 15,000 feet, while locators attached to humpback whales have revealed 1,000-foot dives to underwater mountains. And GPS collars on Yellowstone grizzly bears are giving new insights into one of the most studied large carnivore populations in the world.

Technological advances in recent years have allowed what could be the most inquisitive Earth dweller of them all, humans, to invent ever more ingenious tracking devices to find out what their fellow inhabitants are up to.

Seeing a different side of Maine with Robertson Family Cruises

MILBRIDGE Many people have commented on the idea that there are two versions of Maine. But I've always found that notion, though somewhat true, to be overly simplistic. There are hundreds of Maines, if not thousands. This state is like an intricately carved gemstone, with many facets that make it interesting and beautiful, depending on your angle.

I've been to many parts of the state. I've been up mountains, in rivers, in the air and on the beaches. But there's a lot to see, and clearly I haven't been everywhere or done everything.
