Acadia National Park

Acadia After an intense weekend of training in wilderness first aid, it was a relief to spend the rest of the week decompressing and hiking in Acadia National Park. It’s early in the season and not everything’s open, especially with this spring’s late thaw causing unexpected delays. Even now, the unpaved roads remain closed, and icy piles of snow can be found on the shadow side of the mountains. Still, the carriage roads were accessible by foot, one of my favorite restaurants had just reopened in time for my visit, and it was splendid to be able to enjoy the park crowd-free.

    Sounds really challenging. Acadia is our favorite place. We were there for four days last September. Mache Bistro was on the list but we didn’t make it. Maybe this fall.
