Virtual Hike to Carlingford, New Brunswick

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

The previous destination on my virtual hike was Juniper, New Brunswick.

I am virtually making my way across New Brunswick to the US Border and this is the last  stop before I make it into Maine.

I did not find much about Carlingford except that it was named for a place in Ireland and that is was an anglophone community.

I have been 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.

Look for a couple of interesting reasons why I crossed the border here in the next post.
