You'll Need A Car
Driving anywhere around these parts requires a car - obviously! This is Route 2, which runs Wewst from the New Brunswick (Canada) Border, and on into New Hampshire.
Mexico Warnings and Dangers
Mind the Mooses!
This really made Mary's vacation! Thre we were, minding our own business, and slowing down at some minor road works, when this moose just ambles out of the woods, right in between the slowing cars, and about 3 in front of us! Not a care in the world, until he sort of realised that he ought not to be there, and trotted off into the woods on the other side of the highway! Too fast to get my camera ready, but it was a good thing we were going slowly. I shouldn't want to hit one of them at any speed!
Mexico Off The Beaten Path
Sunday River Covered Bridge
Commonly referred to as the "Artist's Bridge", as it has been painted and photographed so frequently over the years. Built in 1872, it crosses over the Sunday River and is located 4 miles northwest of North Bethel on Routes 2 and 26.
We weren't actually looking for this bridge, which is located about 20 miles West of Mexico, near Bethel. We just happened to spot the signpost on the corner of Sunday River Road. If you go here, ensure you take the right fork at the junction further up this road. We took the left fork, like some other tourists, and it just peters out. For some reason there isn't a directional sign for the bridge at the junction.

Favorite thing: There's not a lot to see in Mexico, but I still had to stop for a quick 'photo shoot'. It's a clean, tidy town on Route 2.
