The next destination on my Virtual Hike was Ashland, Maine.
The previous destination on my virtual hike was Carlingford, New Brunswick.
In the area just before the border I passed through the Amish settlement of Carlingford and just shortly after passed into the New Fairfield Amish settlement. This is interesting as the Amish Bishop serves both settlements and is the only one who serves settlements in two different countries.
The Amish settlements are both Swartzentruber Amish which is the most conservative group of Amish.
Both of these pictures are from the Maine settlement as the Google Street View images on the Canadian side were taken before the Amish settled there.
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. However, the next segment is a bit longer than the last few. Communities are few and far between in northern Maine.
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.
