We scheduled four days in Maine because we had enjoyed it in 2016 on our way to the Canadian Maritime Provinces. Unfortunately, we accidentally reserved both Orchard Beach, Maine and Montpelier, Vermont for the same days. Because we had reservations after Montpelier, we dismissed the idea of adjusting the itinerary and decided instead of accomplish two Maine objectives in one 300-plus mile day trip from our Boston area campground. We visited the Maine State House in Augusta and found Maine’s oldest geocache near Portland. Whew!
The Maine State House was built using Maine granite based on a design of the capitol building from Massachusetts. [Maine and Massachusetts were one state until 1820]
