For those who are as ignorant as I was to geography of the USA, New England is a northeastern region of the USA comprising the states of Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Connecticut and Rhode Island. We didn't go to all the states mentioned though as we focussed our travel to follow the trail of the fall foliage as it was about to peak in some states.
After a few days rest in Dallas, we flew to Boston and from there the journey began.
We stayed one night in Boston and after a short visit of the largest city of New England (photos above), we started our road trip heading east towards Bar Harbour. On the way we made a short stop for lunch in Portland where we had our first lobster meal. We stayed in Bar Harbour for two nights and spent the time during the day around Arcadia National Park.
On the forth day of our trip, we started to see more of the fall colours on the way to Maine and we were pretty excited with the beautiful foliage and the abundance of deeper shades of the leaves along the way.
Whenever there was a good opportunity for us to stop, we would excitedly exit the car and take photos. We struck gold in one partucular stop where there was a completely still water reflecting the autumn trees.
Masya-Allah. It was breathtakingly beautiful.
But, little did we know that an even more beautiful sight was yet to come! It made us feel so blessed to have out feet on this part of the world. I shall save those photos in the next posting though. And you will see what I mean.
