Road Trip - Bangor

One last road trip before we reopen on Friday! We headed up I 95 to Bangor. Less than 2 hours away and a really easy drive. You can take a more leisurely route back by getting off the interstate and wandering the back roads through Liberty where you can go on the Tool Time Tour!

A few scenes from the trip:

Paul Bunyon statue Bangor
The tallest Paul Bunyon statue in the country.
(Who knew there was more than one!)
Remarkable resemblance to Rock, don't you think?

Dysarts truck stop Bangor

Lunch at Dysart's Truck Stop. Yes, truckers abound. As well as lots of locals. Great food and excellent service. Exit 180 in case you're hungry and driving by.

Bangor waterfront in winter
Bangor waterfront in winter. Up the Penobscot River from the Penobscot Bay. Farther downriver is the Penobscot Narrows Bridge & Observatory at Fort Knox.

Stephen King's fence
Then we drove past the House on Maple Street. Too cold out for the Lawnmower Man or even for The Mist to form. It would be Misery and cause Insomnia to miss this Dark Tower so close to the Pet Sematary.(Want to take the Tommyknockers Tour? Check the Bangor Maine CVB site for details and tickets.)
