Amber and I passed through all the northernmost states of the continental U.S in January traveling coast to coast in just over three weeks. (OK so we missed Michigan. But we were within three miles of the border and just did not detour in just for the sake of saying we had been there!) We left Wenatchee Washington on January fourth in our little Jeep Compass. The snow was really piling up that day. We spent a lot of nights on the road and saw a lot of sun rises and sunsets.Although weary, we took the time to see a lot of roadside attractions.
We searched for Crosions but never saw one or learned why they must be controlled. Navigation required we read often mysterious signs.
We saw a Jackalope mount displayed, caught a duck in flight, and 50,000 silver dollars in a bar.
There were vivid colors everywhere.
We met an angel of the apocalypse practicing his fire and brimstone delivery and a man who knew how to coax a local spirit bear to manifest by offering it a pot of hot cocoa and squeaky cheese curds.
So much to do in Maine! Coming up soon, ice harvesting, snow shoeing, Whoopie Pies, mussels and of course more lighthouses and lobster rolls!
