New images: Maine cities

I’ve posted new images of Portland, Bangor and Bar Harbor in Maine. I’ll be the first to admit that I spent only a couple hours in each of those places. In general I do not spend extended time in cities, but rather travel through them en route to or from National Parks. For instance, I […]
