What a surprise when I arrived on a Wednesday to a completely full campground, a cruise ship in Bar Harbor that kept the town bustling, and too many people in cars at the top of Cadillac Mountain as I reached the peak (on foot).
Acadia National Park is a 47,000-acre Atlantic coast area marked by woodland, rocky beaches and granite peaks. So I enjoyed hiking a half-dozen trails that offered stunning views of the coast, and I took to the pavement and carriage roads by bike (thanks, Rockefeller). While I will say that campers' behavior made it clear that I had crossed the border, I expect that there could have been much harsher transitions!
I'm now enjoying a month in New England with family & friends that I'll capture in a single post within the coming week.
