The next destination on my Virtual Hike was Chamberlain Bridge, Maine.
The previous destination on my virtual hike was Ashland, Maine.
The virtual hike from Ashland to Chamberlain Bridge was through the wilderness of Northern Maine. You can see that I was close to the Allagash Wilderness Waterway.
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.
The roads in this segment were not the best roads. Some of the roads had a hard surface.
However, others were just graded dirt roads.
The one thing that was in common was that the roads were lined on both sides by forests.
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.
Here is Chamberlain Bridge which crosses over a narrow part between two lakes in the Allagash Wilderness Waterway.
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.

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.
