We left Canada over the Lewiston bridge and into upper New York State. We stayed in a campground in the heart of the Adirondacks, spending several days driving numerous scenic roads within this area.
We then drove into Vermont, enjoyed a few days there, stopping at numerous picturesque villages and hamlets. We saw several covered bridges in Vermont and New Hampshire. We enjoyed exploring various scenic byways, driving through both the Green Mountains in Vermont and the White Mountains in New Hampshire.

New Hampshire was the next state on our list. Here too, we found many covered bridges, the White Mountains, took a 6 hour ride on the Conway Notch train from North Conway into the mountains, went on more scenic drives, and conquered Mount Washington, the highest peak in the eastern states.

In the  meantime we were sampling wonderful meals on our day trips, having made a promise at the beginning of our journey to sample local specialties in each region we traveled. We made stops at local wineries, bakeries, and farm stands or markets to purchase staples as often as we could. We also explored many little towns and hamlets, enjoying many old buildings, some from the 1700s.
