July 11-14 2012 Heading out of Maine
As we head out of the Bar Harbor area and towards New Hampshire we come to a sign that says, “Fort Knox”. We looked at each other very confused and say, “I didn’t think Fort Knox was in Maine?” So, we turned in and decided we should go check it out. After all, what’s a road trip good for if you don’t discover something new along the way! First thing we notice is how open it is…not exactly locked down like Fort Knox. Come to find out, this is the first Fort Knox but not the one with all of the gold….dang; we could have tried out our Bonnie and Clyde skills! The Fort Knox with the gold is in Kentucky. This Fort Knox is on the Penobscot River in Prospect, Maine and is known for its architectural features and its history with cannon batteries.
