Get Outside (or at least look like you are)

April 30, 2020 Claire Polfus
Just for Fun

We all are dreaming of getting out into the mountains or on the water, but in reality we are spending a lot more time on video calls with our colleagues, family and friends. That's why you should...

Zoom into the Outdoors!

Instead of getting outside for real, get outside virtually with these Zoom backgrounds, brought to you by all of us at Maine Trail Finder. 

Just right-click and save the images to below and then load them into Zoom. Prepare to be taken away into the wilds and woods of Maine on your next video call!

And if you want to express your indoor hobbies, check out King Arthur Flour's baking backgrounds - thanks for the idea (and all the delicious recipes!).
