Pros And Cons Of Driving Along Canadian Border

Satisfactory Essays

Driving along the Canadian border.

Hills and mountains abound on both sides of the Maine/Canada border. However, on the American side, there is absolutely no development. Northern Maine is just the vast north woods.

When you're in the north woods of Maine, you can use this information to orient yourself. Even without a compass or GPS you can find your way. How?

Canada's east-west freight trains get lots of use. You can hear it clearly to the north multiple times per day (and the overnight). Woo-woo, train to the north!

You can also gain information from your view at the tops of ridges and mountains. If you see more ridges and mountains, that's the north woods of Maine. If you see farm fields, then that's the Quebec countryside to the north.
