Walking On Water – Echo Lake

Posted by on Mar 15, 2014 in Places

Echo Lake is located on the "quiet side" of Mount Desert Island in Acadia National Park. All winter it has been, and still is, covered with a thick layer of ice. Today the ice was covered with water. With temps this afternoon approaching 50° F, snow from earlier in the week is now water which is several inches deep in places. Janice and Emma and I drove down to the boat launch at Ikes Point, parked there, walked across the water, and then hiked up to Camp Beech Cliff. I took this shot on the trip back at 5:49 PM with my iPhone 5 in pano mode and post processed the image in Lightroom and Color Efex Pro. The view is looking south with Saint Sauveur Mountain on the left and Beech Mountain on the right. Walking across the water over ice over water was surreal. Is this what Jesus felt like when he called out to Peter? Probably not, but it was pretty cool and an awesome reminder of what an incredible world we live in.
