Acadia

Beech Mountain

Acadia Shoreline

The shoreline of Acadia was rocky. Being overcast it was hard to see much. The wet rocks however brought out many colors that would have been subdued on a normal sunny day.

Bubble Rock

The hike up to Bubble Rock was about 400 feet of elevation and went from a wooded path, to bedrock and views. In total it was a 1.5 mile hike. Once you get to the rock you see that it's just sitting there. The entire hike down the mountain I had Harry Chapin's song, The Rock, stuck in my head.

Cadillac Mountain

Cadillac Mountain is the highest point on the Eastern Coast of the United States. During parts of the year, this is the first part of the US to see that day's sunlight. Unfortunately, when we were there it was overcast and rainy every day, so we didn't get to see any of it.

Gorham Mountain

Gorham Mtn. is a 500ft peak on the far eastern part of Acadia. The round trip hike was about 2.4 miles, up almost the entire 525 foot elevation gain. Part way to the top the path splits to Cadillac Cliffs Path. We took that way back down the mountain.

Acadia

Beech Mountain is just under 900 feet tall

Sand Beach

Acadia is on the Atlantic ocean, but there's only one beach in the whole of the park that has sand on it. It has the distinction of having the name of Sand Beach.
