Maine #5

By handlerstudio  
One of the principal "industries" in Maine is lumbering. A lot of it for paper mills. When I was in college in Lewiston, at Bates, on foggy nights, the smell of the Androscoggin River would waft up the valley. Awful. Going skiing to Sugarloaf, driving through Livermore Falls, you would have to keep the windows closed, the smell was so bad. Now, they have cleaned up the rivers, and there are even fish (presumably not deformed) in them. And, on the highways, other than interstate (which tend to be two lane and often twisty), you never want to get behind a log truck.

Meeting logging trucks on icy roads is my worst I relived every day of the winter when I was working. I don't much like to be ahead of them either because once they get up to speed, they don't like to stop for anything, which means they will pass you no matter what.
This looks like it was taken on the Golden Road.
