Virtual Hike to Rockland, Maine

The next destination on my Virtual Hike was Rockland, Maine.

The Virtual Hike now continues north along the coast of Maine, but not too close as this would involve a lot of back and forth through the inlets. I need to be further inland to follow a straighter path. The next big destinations are in Canada and include several places where my ancestors lived and some important places near them.
