Northeasternmost Point

I was very excited to see the Northeasternmost contiguous point in the continental United States. Very soon I will be able to say that I’ve, “Been to the four corners of this country!” @cjtrowbridge I visited the northeastern most point in the contiguous continental United States! ♬ original sound – CJ Trowbridge

Lobster Rolls at Geddy’s in Bar Harbor

I really didn’t like the Lobster Rolls at Ande’s Variety. So I decided to try someplace a little fancier. Well this was A LOT fancier, but it was also a lot more delicious. I highly recommend trying out this place for a great Lobster Roll. @cjtrowbridge Giving Lobster Rolls a second chance ♬ original sound …

Acadia National Park

What an amazing and beautiful place! Acadia National Park is a beautiful place. It’s an island off the coast of Maine with a bridge to get there. There are tons of cute little towns and harbors and things to see. I think April is the perfect time to be here. It’s remote but it’s definitely …

Holy Donut in Portland, Maine!

Like any good Portland, Portland, Maine has a popular local donut shop called Holy Donut. I tried the Mixed Berry, Sea Salt and Chocolate, and the Maple Bacon donuts. They were all delicious. I have never had a salt and chocolate donut before. I will keep an eye out for similar flavors in the future. …

Trowbridge Square Park (Family History)

Ten generations ago, just over a century before the American revolution, my family cofounded New Haven. Those first Trowbridges came to America four centuries ago in order to trade with the indigenous people for furs to export to Europe. About two centuries later, the family laid out this section of the city as a new …

Shenandoah National Park

Shenandoah National Park covers the peak of the Appalachian Mountains. These mountains come from Pangaea. They are actually older than bones! They are much smaller than the Rockies or even the Sierra or the Siskiyou where I’m from, but that’s only because they’ve been eroding for hundreds of millions of years! There is a road …

Monticello

Monticello

There is so much to say about this place. It was Thomas Jefferson’s Virginia estate. He wrote “All men are created equal” in the American Declaration of Independence, and yet he died owning hundreds of enslaved people, including his own children. Just down the hill from Jefferson’s enormous mansion is a dirt road called Mulberry …

Statue of Liberty

The Statue of Liberty! Unfortunately the ferry was not running but I was able to get pretty close on the land. Very cool to finally see it in person! @cjtrowbridge Statue of Liberty! 🗽 ♬ Dreams (2004 Remaster) – Fleetwood Mac

Manhattan: Pastrami on Rye at Katz’s

I’ve been scouring all the online food guides as I traverse the nation, looking for gems. This is one to remember. A LOT of people have responded to my post about this sandwich with stories of their own pilgrimages to Katz’s deli in New York City. The process of actually buying the sandwich was very …

Philly Cheesesteak

Philly Cheesesteak is the obvious choice in Philly. I found this great place called John’s Roast Pork on a food blog. I drove several hours to get there, and very nearly missed out. I got one of the last sandwiches of the day! It had very little cheese. It was mostly this great moist and …

Liberty Bell
2021 Spring

Liberty Bell

The Liberty Bell was forged with the words “Proclaim LIBERTY Throughout all the Land unto all the Inhabitants Thereof.” It was meant to be hung in the Pennsylvania state house (now called Independence Hall). But it cracked when it was first rung. They tried reforging it twice, but every time it was rung, it would …

Washington DC

This city is not just full of monuments, it is a monument. There is so much history everywhere. From the capitol building that Canada burned down after we tried invading and annexing them, to the Lincoln Memorial which for some reason was full of Nazis when I visited. It’s a wild and complex place full …

New River Gorge National Park

New River National Park

New River is actually an ancient river! It’s all fours and fives but I’ve heard people enjoy rafting it. The water was extremely high today when I was there, and all the roadside stops were taped off with signs warning of “Extreme Danger.” @cjtrowbridge New River National Park ♬ original sound – CJ Trowbridge Still …
