The morning after our arrival at Lakeview Campground in St. Agatha, the weather was brighter and we headed out to take Sylvie as far north and west as we were comfortable. We went to a point just before “Little Black Checkpoint” on Map 66 of the DeLorme Atlas and Gazatteer.
We headed back east to the junction of the Allagash River with the St. John River. The Allagash comes in from the south to the east-flowing St. John.
Fort Kent, where U.S. Route 1 begins or ends, according to your perspective. Yes, we were at the other end of Route 1 earlier this year.
Madawaska, Maine and Edmundston, New Brunswick are linked by a mile-long pressure pipeline that carries pulp created in the Twin Rivers plant in Edmundston across the border to the paper mill in Madawaska. It looks like one big town. Most of the structures in the following photos are in Canada.
Then we ran into this yearling – oops, bad terminology, not literally!
On our way back to St. Agatha we drove through Pelletier Island in Long Lake, connected by a long causeway to the shore.
