Our time at Acadia is done, and it’s been incredible. The early disappointment of the government shutdown actually worked in our favor, allowing us to play in the Park as if it were our own private National Park. Those of us who can manage on foot or bicycle really struck gold these past days.
We decided to spend the day cycling on the Carriage Roads that weave through the middle of Acadia. These are packed down gravel paths, nearly as smooth as pavement, but for hikers, bicycles, and carriages only. With the carriages not operating, they were nearly deserted. Even better for us. These interior roads gave us an entirely different view of the Park than the perimeter Loop Road that we enjoyed on Thursday.
Enjoy the photos. Tomorrow we move north to Cobscook Bay, up near the Canadian border.
