The Great Meadow

The Great Meadow

Today Janice and I explored the Great Meadow in Acadia National Park. From Bar Harbor, we drove to the end of Great Meadow Drive and parked at the locked gate about 100 yards from the Park Loop Road which you can see in a few of the pictures below. From there we walked to Sieur de Monts where we got onto the Jesup Path which begins as a long wooden boardwalk. We followed the path back to the …

Winter on Saint Sauveur Mountain

Winter on Saint Sauveur Mountain

Today we did a one-way hike from the Flying Mountain parking lot to the Acadia Mountain trail head on route 102. Cameron and I drove one car to the parking area on route 102 and then drove over to meet up with Janice and Emma with the other car at Flying Mountain. This is one way to do a one-way hike (ha ha). In the summer we sometimes take a car with bikes and leave either the car or the …

Island Lichen

Island Lichen

I’m sharing just this one image that I shot during a bitterly cold walk around one of the uninhabited islands off of Mount Desert Island. The water you see is Blue Hill Bay. I took it with a Fuji XT-3 and a manual-focus Rokinon 12mm f/2 lens. With the wind chill, temperatures were near zero which makes photography very challenging for me. I can manage to press the shutter button while …

Acadian Ridge Trail

Acadian Ridge Trail

The Acadian Ridge Trail is located in the northern section of Mount Desert Island near the Kitteridge Brook Forest. As far as I can tell, the trail is on private, conserved property maintained by Maine Coast Heritage Trust and Friends of Acadia. Janice and I walked the path one-way and wandered back to our car, past the festive sculpture, along Norway Drive. The person who told me about this …

Hadlock Brook and Hemlock Bridge

Hadlock Brook and Hemlock Bridge

Janice and I hiked up to the Waterfall Bridge in Acadia National Park during a heavy rain. We knew the water would be flowing heavily, but still we were amazed by just how much water runs off the mountains of Mount Desert Island during a storm. On our walk long the carriage roads starting at the Parkman Mountain parking area, every culvert, spout, and normally dry stream was gushing water. …

Perpendicular Trail

Perpendicular Trail

The Perpendicular Trail is located in Acadia National Park on the “quiet side” of Mount Desert Island. Being one of my favorite trails in the park, I chose to photograph it from end to end.

Though only a mile long, the Perpendicular Trail is not for the faint of heart because your heart will get a workout as you ascend the trail’s 704 stone steps. For even more …

Hadlock Stream

Hadlock Stream

Hadlock Stream originates at the southern end of Lower Hadlock Pond, travels through the Northeast Harbor Golf Club course, crosses Sargent Drive, and empties into Somes Sound. This picturesque bridge is located on the Golf Club trail which is part of a network of trails maintained by the Northeast Harbor Village Improvement Society (VIS). Incorporated in 1898, the VIS maintains 14 trails …

Today Janice and I awoke to a temperature of 29°F. Yes, fall is here and winter is not far behind. We dressed warmly in preparation for a hike up the West Ledge Trail to the top of Bernard Mountain. To get there, we got onto the Western Mountain fire road and followed it nearly to Seal Cove Pond where there’s a little turnout opposite the trail head. Total driving time from our house: …

Beech Mountain Loop Trail
Deprecated: Function get_magic_quotes_gpc() is deprecated in /home/avantlog/georgesoules.com/wp-includes/formatting.php on line 2692

Beech Mountain is located on the west side of Mount Desert Island in Acadia National Park. With a summit of only 839 feet, it’s not one of the higher peaks, but it has a commanding view, so much so that a fire tower was erected there in the 1960’s. Janice and Emma and I chose this hike today because it was short and we only had a few hours until dark. We drove to the end of Beech Hill Road …

Bald Peak and Parkman Mountain

Acadia National Park is a hiker’s paradise. With more than 20 peaks to climb and some 125 miles of hiking trails ranging in difficulty from easy to difficult, there is something for everybody. In winter even the easiest trail can be dangerous when covered with ice. Today’s hike with Janice and Emma was less than three miles long, but it was probably the most challenging one we’ve been on …
