Days 43 and 44
Staying North of Philadelphia, the route meets the Delaware River and follows alongside it before diverging away to reach the Hudson near West Point. After a stretch beside the Hudson, we take the “Taconic State Parkway” to Bennington where several covered bridges await inspection on rest day.
Vermont trees should have turned a suitable colour for our inspection as we spend a leisurely day on the “Green Mountain Highway”. Plenty of time to stop for photos as we drive through the local ski areas passing the occasional maple sugar still and several more covered bridges.
A busy day through New Hampshire’s White Mountains where we detour to drive the “Mount Washington Auto Road” to the windy summit. After enjoying the view, we head to Maine with its countless lakes and endless forests.

We follow the coast again through the picturesque resorts of Kennebunkport and Ogunquit to the end of the journey in Boston.
