Postcards from Acadia

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.

Started the day with Dutch oven cinnamon rolls.  Can’t beat that.20131005_094222_HDR

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.

  1. I feel so bad that I can not go, every time I see your pictures I feel a knot in my belly and want to go. But the time has past me by.

    • We feel bad for all the folks who did get held back by the shutdown. Vacations don’t grow on trees – there must be thousands of disappointed tourists here and outside all the National Parks. But, the scenery IS awesome. My first time into this area, and already I can’t wait to come back.

  2. Beautiful. I love the bridges. They look like they were made with love. Those are cool fungi. I wonder if they’re edible. Seems there’s postcard worthy gorgeous scenery at every turn. Can’t wait for the next set of pictures and blog
