Acadia – finale

There’s more!

Thus concludes four lovely days in Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor, Maine. In my recent posts I have shared stories and photos from my hikes and other activities. But not everything fit, so let me share a final photo gallery – distinct from photos in the other galleries, it is a mixed bag of scenery, activity, and food :-). I especially like the video of Boulder Beach where, if you listen carefully, you can hear the boulders rolling in the surf as it recedes.

Mount Desert town historical site – the selectmens’ building.

This trip to Acadia reminded my of my earlier two visits – the first in 1981, I think, on a high-school trip with the rock-climbing club. We climbed at Otter Cliffs, some of the most exhilarating climbing I’d ever done, and camped nearby. It was fun to re-visit that location this week, and to see people climbing those same pitches.

The other was in September 1993, with Pam, and we explored several of the sights and trails. I was able to assemble a gallery of a few photos from that trip, by scanning old slides.

I will surely need to return, because there is more to see and more to do!

Restaurants: I tried a variety of restaurants (in Bar Harbor unless specified):
