Day Six - Bangor, Maine to Passaconaway, New Hampshire (189 miles)

We started the day by driving by Stephen King's home (mansion?). U.S.2 took us back west toward New Hampshire. At Conway we headed south on St.Rt. 16. About 10 miles onto this road we stopped at another watering hole in the White Mountain  National Forest. This hole was much more crowded, and lacked the charm of the first one. We then decided to ride up Mt. Washington on our bikes, but the visibility was less than a mile, so we chose to continue riding. At Center Conway we turned west on St.Rt. 112, otherwise known as the Kancamagus Highway. I had read an article about this road in Rider magazine. The article was right; the road was fabulous. Tight twisties, good pavement, and plenty of scenery were abundant. We found a good camping spot near Passaconaway.
