September 18 – Three down, one to go! With today’s visit to the easternmost point in the United States, we now only have to visit the westernmost point and we will have ticked all four ‘Extreme Points in the Contiguous U.S.’ boxes!
I’ve posted about our prior Extreme Points visits – South: Key West and North: Northwest Angle. That just leaves Cape Alava, Washington, which we’ll hit around June 2015, and then this quirky little goal of ours will be fulfilled!
West Quoddy Head lighthouse sits in Quoddy Head State Park just outside of Lubec, Maine. We took a day out of our Acadia N.P. touring to come here, following Route 1 along the Maine coastline about 100 miles up until we saw Canada across the bay, then there it was!
Isn’t it a pretty lighthouse? I love the stripes, but as we women know, it does make the lighthouse look fat! ;)
