My dad grew up in Madawaska Maine. Haven't been there in 30 years. hope to take a bike trip up there someday.My wife and I crossed lake Champlaigne on a ferry. started on the New York side. Rode route 2 through VT and NH. Go up Mt Washington, very steep, narrow, and weather unpredictable. Continued on route 2 through Maine and on to Acadia National Park. Vary beautiful place to visit.
