Thursday, May 30, 2013 : Acadia National Park

 

Although the morning fog does not really bode well, the weather forecast looks OK. So, after a plentiful breakfast, we do as planned and drive to Acadia National Park, slightly above an hour away.

Acadia National Park, Jordan Pond

 

Surprising as they may seem, the shapes of rocks, lakes and coastlines of this park, located on a large island, are entirely the result of erosion by glaciers. The lake pictured above is the bed of an ancient glacier.

 

Anyway, it's superb, especially under the sun.

Cadillac Mountain

 

The picture above has been taken from the top of Cadillac Mountain, the highest point in the park. From up there, the work of glacier erosion can be seen pretty well. The viewpoint on the park, with the Atlantic Ocean in the distance, is absolutely gorgeous.

 

We then have a brief stroll in Bar Harbor, just long enough to see 8 Corvettes in less than 300 feet.

 

Looks like they were expecting for me !
