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.

Hi Deb You are awesome. What a view. You are taking on such exciting places. That was fun in Santa Fe… Great to see you and catch up. Xx Leslie
Thanks for all of your caring support, it was a treat to see you… have been craving silver jewelry every since then ;)
We have only visited once, but the beauty is certainly reflected in this wonderful photo. :-)
I’ve tried to go every two years, but usually during fall — definitely worth repeated visits and in different seasons!
Visited few years ago and went on the ranger led tours, gorgeous, just gorgeous would love to return soon.
Lucky you that you were able to attend one of the ranger-led tours! Unfortunately, it was too early in the season for them to have started.
Love this photo – it sounds like a wonderful trip.
Getting to know my new iphone and its camera… steep learning curve all around ;)
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.
Fall remains my favorite time to visit. Hope you get a chance to try Mache Bistro — they emphasize local food and what’s fresh then should be great!
One place I wish to visit one day.
I know, so many beautiful places to visit, so little time ;)
