Acada National Park

September 2003

Rocky Coast line at Otter Point, Acada National Park.


We left Eastport, Maine on Friday and traveled south on Scenic Highway 1 to the tourist trap, Bar Harbor, where we stayed at a National Forest Campground for a half price fee of ten bucks a night with not hook-ups. Then we checked out the 20 mile Acada National Park road with all the stops. Saturday we caught the very north edge of Hurricane Isabel and got a little rain so instead of site seeing we spent the day shopping in Bar Harbor and Elsworth. Sunday the sun was out and we again checked out the rest of the 20 mile road we missed on Friday and also took the road up to the 1,530 foot Cadillac Mountain and Jordans Pond below the mountain.

They say the fall color will be couple of weeks late this year because of a mild summer.
