Virtual Hike to Juniper, New Brunswick

The next destination on my Virtual Hike was Juniper, New Brunswick.

The previous destination on my virtual hike was Cross Creek Station, New Brunswick.

I am virtually making my way across New Brunswick to the US Border and have only one more stop before I make it into Maine.

I did not find much about Juniper, but it is named for the juniper shrubs that are in the surrounding bog areas. I chose Juniper as it was the right distance and also the name of the daughter of a good friend of mine.

I am setting shorter distances between destinations for better motivation for my daily walking and so far it has been working. I have been walking more each day.

My current plan is to make my way toward northern New York through Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont. Perhaps I will find some interesting stops along the way. I have only one more stop in New Brunswick and then will cross the border into Maine.
