The roads are pretty darn straight up this way. Provides good visibility to moose and deer, I suppose. Actually the roads become reminicient of alot of the roads out west.
As we get closer to our first stop, those little cat feet seem to get a hold of the ground. Of course where this road goes it is qutie twisty.

The visitor center was not open. If it was I am sure I would have purchased a Lighthouse Society Lighthouse Passport, which just might have the start of another IBA Tour.
On the way into the lighthouse these flowers grabbed my eye. I just had to stop for a pic. Please click the pictures to see them bigger.
The little cat feet has decided to move on. This is the same road we came in on.
I have been doing National Park Tours since 2007 and Campobello Park has eluded me. With a new Passport book in hand, we just had to stop. This was the summer cottage for the Roosevelt's. I am not sure what defines a cottage versus a mansion, but this place does not look like a cottage to me. I must travel in different social circles.
This place is visually stunning.
Inside the Cottage
A view of Eastport ME. The Roosevelt's would take the train from Hyde Park, NY to Eastport, ME and come over by boat.
Back thru Customs. We had no problems, other than MeAsWe likes to talk to the authorities a tad too much.
An interesting sight along the way
Half way between the Equator and the North Pole. This one is in Perry, ME
Since we stopped in Acadia for a stamp, we had to stop here as well
|A view of St Croix Island|
We were going to take RT 2 in Canada up to Houlton, but the line at the Canadian border in Calais was just too backed up so we headed up RT 1. Right outside Calais was the Moosehorn Wildlife Refuge, so we headed in to get a stamp. Stamps are good
Along RT 1 right around Presque Isle in June or July the mustard fields are in full bloom. It is unbelievable sight. This is a picture from a previous trip.
By the time we got there they looked like straw.
Beginning in Houlton with Pluto, there is a scale model of our solar system. Each planet is correct in size and distance from the sun, which is located in Presque Isle at the University of Maine. This is a Jupiter I took in 2009 on my Connie
We grabbed Stockholm, Sinclair, St Agatha and St David just outside Madawaska for the USA Tour.
Finally pulled into Madawaska. If you are doing the SCMA 4 Corners Ride, this is the post office you mail your envelope from Madawaska
At first we were going to get the 4 Corner Memorial tomorrow, however since we passed right by, we turned in and got it today.
