Jordan Pond Frozen

Jordan Pond Frozen

Today Janice I again took advantage of the recent snowfall by snowshoeing the length of Jordan Pond. With the sun so strong and temps in the mid 30’s, the conditions were spring-like except for the fierce north wind which made for a brutal crossing, but it was worth it.

The eight small images at the bottom of the gallery below show our route. Starting from the boat launch at …

Eagle Lake Frozen

Eagle Lake Frozen

Yesterday we received a foot of snow and here’s what it looked like today. It simply doesn’t get any better than this. Blue skies, temps in the twenties, no wind, and no people. Out on Eagle Lake, Janice and I had Acadia National Park all to ourselves. We parked at the boat ramp and walked along the carriage road on the east side of the lake, about a mile and a half. Then we …

Echo Lake Frozen

It’s that time of year in Maine when the lakes freeze over and people drill holes in the ice to catch fish. Janice and I spent the afternoon with our friends Colleen and Jason hanging out in their ice fishing hut on Echo Lake in Acadia National Park. You may recognize Colleen from this photo I took of her and Janice at the Harbor Watch Inn on Swans Island in February of 2016. Colleen …

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 …

Long Pond Frozen

Long Pond Frozen

I took a Sunday morning walk on the south end of Long Pond in Acadia National Park and shot the pictures below. Once known as Great Pond, this is the largest lake on Mount Desert Island. This glacially formed body of water is about four miles long, over one hundred feet deep, and serves as the water supply for the town of Southwest Harbor. However, on this winter morning, there was no water …

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 …

Mother nature came with a vengeance this week delivering back to back storms and blizzard conditions. Up until a few days ago, it had snowed only once and just a few inches. My snowshoes felt neglected. I’ve learned however that just because it hasn’t snowed doesn’t mean it won’t snow. And blow, and drift, and snow some more. To get the pictures I shot today, I first had to exit my front …

Tesla Charging Station on Swans Island

Tesla Charging Station on Swans Island

I picked one of the coldest days of the year to travel out to Swans Island to photograph my friend Colleen’s new Tesla charging station at her Harbor Watch Inn. We thought it would be fun to take a picture and write a press release to promote electric vehicles and inn. It was fun, but it was damn cold. How cold was it? The thermometer at my house read -2F, but I think it warmed into single …

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 …
