October Photo of the Day 10.16.21

The leaves on this Moosewood Maple tree were just beginning to change to the pale yellow fall color that distinguishes this plant in the forest. The way the leaves reflect the filtered light in these deeply shaded forests always amazes me. Across the rocky… Continue Reading “October Photo of the Day 10.16.21”

October Photo of the Day 10.10.21

Little Hunter’s Beach is a lesser known spot on the park loop road and an easy 1.5 mile walk for me from my summer home. I love to visit here in the early morning or early evening. The best part of hanging out on… Continue Reading “October Photo of the Day 10.10.21”

October Photo of the Day 10.9.21

Riding the Witch Hole Pond carriage road loop in search of some inspiring photographs, I was disappointed in my efforts.

October Photo of the Day 10.8.21

Fall colors are starting to pop out all over Mount Desert Island. Yesterday’s dramatic cloud-filled sky complimented the emerging colors. 🙂

Carriage Road Tour

On Wednesday, the weather forecast was ideal for a long bike ride. I planned a route that would take me several hours to complete and capture a circuitous journey through the heart of the park. It was an ambitious 14-plus mile tour. The 45-mile… Continue Reading “Carriage Road Tour”

Sunrise Over Otter Point

Rose early the other morning and watched the sunrise over Otter Point. Turned out to be a good move. Since I was up so early I was able to beat the heat and get a 7-mile hike in before noon! 🙂 I hiked a… Continue Reading “Sunrise Over Otter Point”

Misty Afternoon Walk

I never tire of taking photographs of the Cobblestone Bridge in Acadia National Park. Of all the Rockefeller bridges in the park, it is my favorite. Yesterday, I embarked on a late afternoon walk choosing a loop that kept me in the Land and… Continue Reading “Misty Afternoon Walk”
