Route 1 is celebrated for picturesque Maine scenery that every "out-of-stater" images when thinking about our great Pine Tree State. Winter finds a way of beautifying every field and home along the famous road; this make winter my favorite time to travel the Eastern side of Maine, typically in comfortable layers of wools and Scotch plaids. Free time wasn't spent circling my atlas today, at the dining room table, for potentially successful ice-fishing spots. Instead, we took advantage of fair skies and fired up the Silverado in search of country images. Frost-covered windshields revealed the glimmer of freshly fallen powder and the reason I love our winter wonderland.
