Our journey began in the White Mountains in New Hampshire. The first stop was the Flume Gorge. Nice was a place, but nothing special when comparing to Watkins Glen in upstate New York. The latter is similar, but larger, longer and more interesting in our opinion. The visit to Flume Gorge gave us the opportunity to see and walk on two covered bridges.
The goal was to spend a night in the neighboring Maine. On our way we stopped to see rail Clark's Covered Bridge. Unfortunately, today only trains full of tourists cross this bridge. Train ride is one of the attractions of the local amusement park. We also wanted to stop and see Bartlett Covered Bridge. However, when realized, that this bridge has no crossing, but in its interior had many boring, tourist focused souvenir shops, we abandoned that idea.
We skipped New Hampshires so-called top attraction, a drive to the peak of Mount Washington. We did a few years back, and we did not consider it as the challenge and big attraction for off-road travelers. We would be a little ashamed to decorate our Jeep with a sticker given to everyone when paying an entrance fee: "This car climbed Mt. Washington. Anyone can do it; there is no pride in it.
