ACADIA NATIONAL PARK 9/2012
Acadia is one of my favorite places on the planet. As you cross over Thompson Island
the light changes, the air smells better and I am transported back in time.
It's a place where you can still see the Milky Way on a moonless night, have an
ice cream sundae at a drug store soda fountain, take a ride on a working lobster boat, have popovers with butter and homemade strawberry jam and view with childlike wonder the beauty of nature.

Biking on the Carriage roads
Forty-five miles of rustic carriage roads weave around the mountains and valleys of Acadia National Park, easily my favorite way to see the park.
The Bubbles, view from the Jordan Pond Tea House~best popovers ever!
Sunset from atop Cadillac Mountain~ With an elevation of 1,528 feet (470 m), its summit is the highest point within 25 miles (40 km) of a coastline on the U.S. East Coast. A 360° view.
