We drove into Millinockett, Maine from Brunswick. Early in the morning you have the road all to yourself and the highway is wide and straight. We were pretty much focused on Mt. Katahdin, as we were doing an up and over the next day. But Millinockett is a nice town, very welcoming. Didn't take many pictures until we got to the mountain, stopped by the ranger cabin and walked down to the lake to view what was ahead of us. Ate a good home-cooked meal at one of the local restaurants. Hardly slept that night knowing we had a great day ahead. Recommend a one night stay just to take in the area in Baxter State Park and do as much hiking as you want.
