a spring visit, Acadia National Park
A number of years back I started visiting Acadia National Park twice a year. My target dates are spring and fall - before and after the heavy summer visitor population. This year's spring visit was just two weeks ago. I started with an overnight visit with a friend in Yarmouth, Maine before heading to Downeast Maine.
I started my visit in the Schoodic section of the park, https://www.nps.gov/acad/planyourvisit/schoodic.htm. As I got closer to the tip of the peninsula the blue of the sky disappeared, replaced by a bit of fog.
1 :: warning sign
2 :: trees, reflected
3 :: rocks and twisted trees, at the tip of the peninsula
4 :: diabase dike
5 :: rocks and water
6 :: heading north along the edge of the peninsula
The ocean creates songs in areas of round rocks. There are wonderful sounds as the rocks roll in reaction to the waves.
7 :: round rocks
As I was driving from Schoodic to Mount Desert Island the sky changed.
8 :: across from the park information stop, crossing to the island
I had 2+ days to wander in the part of the park on Mount Desert Island
9 :: along Park Loop Road, looking inland
10 :: early spring green
11 :: rushing water, at the edge of Sand Beach
12 :: looking back to Sand Beach
13 :: rocky coast
14 :: Jordan Pond
15 :: rocks and trees
16 :: in the woods (Compass Harbor trail)
17 :: jagged and round rocks
