Virtual Hike to Chamberlain Bridge, Maine

The next destination on my Virtual Hike was Chamberlain Bridge, Maine.

The previous destination on my virtual hike was Ashland, Maine.

It is also interesting that this time my destination is not a town, but rather just a bridge. I needed to find somewhere in the wilderness to have as a destination.

In one of the few places where there were images from street view you could see that it had recently rained and there were puddles on the road. I am sure it would be a messy hike in the rain.

The bridge is an important crossing in this area of Maine.

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, this segment was 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.

  1. Years ago I wrote a story about a graduate who started in Maine and worked and walked his way to the west coast. Excited to get it published.
