I've been wanting to see Acadia National Park for a long time. Today I did. The day was overcast which was a shame, but not a disaster. There is a road that loops around the park and we got a bit off course and ended up doing the last part first and the first part last. That was too bad because the first part threw me for a loop. You were supposed to see various sights and then end up driving to the summit of Cadillac Mountain which is the highest point of land on the eastern seaboard at 1,530 feet. That doesn't sound very high to all you world travelers who have been in the Rockies and Grand Tetons, I know. I was okay when we started up but the higher we got, the more uncomfortable I became. By the time we reached the top, I was sure we were going to tumble off the side and roll all the way down. It just made me nervous and I couldn't wait to get down. I think it kind of spoiled the day for me. I did manage to take a few pictures of things on the shore that pleased me.
You are probably wondering how I got this fantastic shot of this guy. Well, he was eating cheezits out of some lady's hand on the rocks and seemed to quite happy to have his picture taken, as long as the cheezits kept coming.
This was a pretty lake in the heart of the park. We leave here tomorrow and go to Wiscasset for a night on our way to Portsmouth, NH.
