|Sunrise West Quoddy Head Maine|
How I ended up on the Easternmost Spot in America
I first heard of this location in junior high school from a history teacher. I was surprised to find out that the easternmost spot in America is in Maine; most people believe its in Florida or Cape Cod. Fast forward about 10 years and I'm working in Maine as a ropes course director. I got a day off and borrowed a friends car and set off to see the first sunrise! Leaving southern Maine at around 11:00PM, I had to drive nearly 6 hours to get to this point. Maine is actually a pretty large state for one on the eastern seaboard!
