Day 12

Travel; Day 12

Day 12 was a slow day for photos. There wasn't much that was 'intriguing' to me, and with my wife in the car, I didn't drive for the number of hours and miles I did previously. Also, with the northeast being more congested with slower speed limits, my trip was going to drag on slower.

I took I-90 past Buffalo and on to Albany. Along the way, we stopped for a late lunch in Utica.

Reaching Albany, we decided to head through Vermont, rather than drive to Massachusetts, and have to make a side trip for Vermont.

I took I-87 north to NY7. I then took that east, past where it's no longer a fourlane, and up through to Vermont.


Taking NY279 into Vermont, we then got on US7, which is a Super 2 highway. Once we got past Manchester Center, it was back to a normal two-lane. We continued that north to Rutland where we got on US4.

This was a longer part of our drive as we headed through a much less straight section of highway.

It was already getting late when we got into New Hampshire.

On I-89, we headed south to Concord, a place we had just been a month earlier when coming home from Montreal after New Years'.

Still driving, we took I-93 south and got on NH101.

At just before 2am, we were on I-95, the Blue Star Turnpike heading north into Maine.


We stopped in York, ME at a Econolodge for the night and ended the day's drive at 2:30 in the morning.
