Cruising through Maine
continued from page 89

The Crown of Maine
Aroostook County
Not typically considered part of inland Maine and not a coastal region,
Aroostook has a story all it's own. Typically know by its more familiar name
The County is a full 5th of the size
of Maine. Also known as the Crown
of Maine, it possesses a quiet luster
that is vibrantly colored by its culture
and closely-knit people. With most
of its cities perched on the state's
eastern border with Canada there is
an interesting international feel to
the place. Farmland, forest, beautiful crystal clear lakes; The County is
worth the drive. Spot Katahdin from
Rt. 11 or from the final bits of I-95
before it ends in Houlton. US-1 allows for spectacular views (known
as the Million Dollar View Scenic
Byway. Daytime trips offer beauty in
virtually every direction, and nights

often bring the mysterious Northern Lights. Sporting types who travel
here in the winter know that cruising
takes on an alternate meaning with
more than 1,000 miles of snowmobiling trails - doing double duty as ATV
trails in warmer weather. Along the
western edge, Rt. 11 skirts an endless sea of deep green that makes
up the more than three million acres
of working forestland of The North
Maine Woods. And if you're planning
on coming, don't forget your paddle
because The County is home to the
92 miles of the Allagash Wilderness
Waterway, a place many believe is
the last truly wild waterway in our
country.

Maine's Inland Places
Bangor, Greenville and the Highlands
The city of Bangor was built upon
the rich natural resources produced
by Maine's north woods and today
it continues to serve as the cultural
centerpiece of northern Maine. Any
and all travelers seeking to head
into northern Maine will likely come

through this modern city that makes
itself a welcome host to events and
performances all year long. For travelers headed on to other parts, I-95,
Rt. 15, Rt. 9, Rt. 1-A, and Rt. 2 all
prove access to the woods, the coast
and even the mountains. Those looking for memorable and scenic drives
should make their way up Rt. 11 onto
the Grindstone Scenic Byway - now
known as the Katahdin Woods and
Waters Byway - which encircles the
eastern side of Baxter State Park,
home to Maine's highest peak, Mt.
Katahdin (just shy of a mile high), and
the northern terminus of the Appalachian Trail. It also sits on the edge of
the Allagash and parts of the Maine
Woods introduced to us by Henry David Thoreau 150 years ago. Beautiful,
quiet, green places along the West
Branch of the Penobscot River and
thundering pulse-pounding places
that still draw us in for the thrill of
whitewater along the East Branch of
the Penobscot. Rt. 11 travels southwest out of Millinocket taking you towards another of the highlands most
glorious features: the picturesque resort town of Greenville on Moosehead Lake. As Maine's largest lake
there are no end to the things you
can enjoy in the outdoors here - hiking, paddling, the age old traditions
of hunting and fishing, moose safari
and the spectacular sights to be seen
from a top Mt. Kineo perched in the
center of the lake just waiting for you
to explore. This is the epitome of
camping bliss, beautiful stretches of
uninterrupted green punctuated with
deep hues of blue from the lakes and
ponds and just about nothing else to
get in theway.
