Apr 30, 2005 - Lewiston and Mt Bradbury State Park

We scoped out the site closest to the bathroom as a potential spot to sleep that night and then headed toward Lewiston. Lewiston was a bit of a disappointment. Not only did it pour all day, but the town was a depressing has-been. There was no "adorable" waterfront to redeem it, no cute coffee shops, restaurants or bars, only the scars of industry and...
