Acadia National Park

Acadia is a beautiful park.  We set out today to begin exploring it.  Unfortunately we will only be here a few days as we want to head to New Hampshire to catch the fall colors over there and it’s getting near that time.  There is so much to see and so many trails to hike we could easily spend a week here.

In one of the parking lots we ran across these old cars.  That was unexpected treat.  They had been to a car show earlier in the day.

One of our stops was called Thunder Hole.  There is a little cave down by the water that when a wave enters it splashes back and makes a good “whoof” sound.

There was a group of about a dozen rock climbers doing their thing.  We watched them for a while.

After walking along the shoreline for we moved inland.  In addition to the 130 miles of hiking trails there are about 45 miles of carriage roads in the park.  These were constructed by John D. Rockefeller Jr. and family.  He wanted to see the park via horse and carriage with no motor-cars allowed.  Now the trails are mainly used by bicyclists and hikers and some horses.  There are still carriage rides available, but we didn’t see any.  You can bring your own horse here, there is a boarding stable for you. We didn’t see any horses either.

When we returned home it rained for a while and then a double rainbow appeared in front of us.  Nice 🙂
