First, we stopped at Kennebec River Brewery, which was very rustic. Not only is it a brewery/restaurant but it also has a hot tub outside for snowmobilers in winter and cabins to rent on the grounds.
|Yep, that's blueberry beer!|
Then we went for a picnic at the highest drop waterfall in Maine- Moxie Falls.And then we were off to Moosehead Lake. The GPS said that we could take a shortcut and save about 40ish miles. And that's how this blog came about.....
The road started out paved. Then it was gravel. With very dense vegetation on either side. Becoming more narrow. And more narrow. We were having fun. Then the potholes started. Which became craters. Craters that could swallow the car.Which became impassable.So after about 12 miles it was time to turn around.. And the conversation turned to adventures on gravel roads. I decided I wanted to start a blog. And my friend Jo suggested The Unpaved Road as the name. Brilliant!
We continued on to Moosehead Lake, taking the long way. Turns out that the GPS had sent us on a snowmobile path instead of a road. But we made it. We had a fun dinner on the shores of Moosehead and walked around the town of Greenville a bit.
I love seeing new places. Going on adventures. With Mr. UR and with my kids. And with friends. And I've enjoyed blogging about my trips and experiences this past year. Yes, I can't believe it was a year ago that I pushed publish on this blog - and The Unpaved Road went from an adventure in Maine to a real, full-fledged blog. I so appreciate all of you taking the time out of your day to read this blog. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! And I hope you continue to do so as I continue to blog about where I've been. I think I have a really fun year of travel ahead to blog about. And I hope you think so, too!
