Day Three - N. Adams, Massachusetts to Portland, Maine (307 miles)

Mike had filled up with Premium gas late the night before, and as we started this day, his bike began to run like it should. St.Rt. 2, called the Mohawk Trail from N. Adams to I-91 was very pleasant with great scenery. We stopped at Mohawk Trail State Forest overlook to snap a few pictures. We were finally beginning to make some time, and put a few miles behind us. Maybe it had something to do with N. Adams not having any local spots. We blasted up I-91 through Vermont and exited at St. Johnsbury. We back tracked back south and got on U.S. 302. This turned out to be fantastic road. On this road between Willey House, and Bartlett, Mike spotted a watering hole with a number of generation X'ers having a good time soaking up the rays, and sliding through a series of natural rock slides. At first Steve and I were a bit apprehensive at stopping, but after we were there a few short minutes we knew Mike had made a good call. After probably two hours we bid our new found friends adieu and continued east. We followed U.S. 302 into Portland, and found a great inexpensive motel for the night.
