Everyone told us that all the tourist go to Bar Harbor. So we went. We just visited the town and missed things like Thunder Hole because we were a bit fatigued from driving that day.
After that we headed to Glen Ellis, Maine. We got some gloom and rain or this would have been one of our favorite camping sites.
About 20 minutes away was Glen Ellis Falls where we hiked in to view one of the largest waterfalls locally.
We spent a lot of time in Maine and it were ready to see some other states. On our way to Vermont, through New Hampshire, we took the Kangamangus Highway which was very scenic this time of year.
We ended up in Stowe, Vermont. One of the first things we did was check out a local maple sugar farmer who sold us some really good maple syrup. We then headed out to checkout out some local breweries. One we went to was The Alchemist. The beer was disappointing, but the architecture was impressive.
One common beer theme that we liked about New England was that you could get Shipyard Pumpkin Ale everywhere on tap. It tastes almost just like a pumpkin pie. If you want they will coat the rim with a brown sugar mixture. We found it to be too sweet, but it must be popular because it was always offered to us when ever we ordered a Shipyard Pumpkin Ale.
