Day 25, Friday, Sept 26, N. Conway, NH to Bangor, Maine

This is the beautiful Kennebec River that flows down from the mountains through the heart of Maine and on to the Atlantic Ocean. This was taken at a rest stop just east of Skowhegan, Maine, on US 2, as we journied toward Bangor.

This is looking north along a rocky stream bed just off to the east side of Rt 16 in the midst of the White Mountains of New Hampshire.

Learning that serious rain and wind was being forcast for the New England area, beginning today(Friday, Sept 26), we hoped to remain in Conway, NH rather than drive through the beautiful White Mountains during rain and limited visibility. But such was not to be because of high room rates and non-availability.

So, after a comfortable night's rest at North Conway's Comfort Inn we continued on up NH Rt 16 to Goram, then turned east on US 2 stopping for the night in Bangor, Maine where I served as a missionary so many years ago (Fall and Winter of 1961).

This picture was taken along Rt 16 in the heart of the White Mountains, the tops of which are caught in the storm clouds. This drive through New Hampshires mountain region provided our best experience to date viewing the amazing colors of Fall.
