Visit Acadia National Park, Maine in Foggy August
Three day weekend? Why not drive 8 hours to Acadia National Park, Maine for a little wildlife, hiking and camping in the most eastern national park in the US?
1. Lobster, Lobster, Lobster
@ Bagaduce Lunch; wonderful lobster rolls at this slightly off the beaten path stop. Technically this is on the way, but by way of a longer route to Acadia, well worth it!
2. Beaver Dam at...
@ Beaver Dam Pond
3. Time for a Swim? Probably not
@ Sand Beach; beautfiul coastline, but frigid waters on a foggy day
4. The Cliffs at Thunder Hole
Classic Maine Shoreline
5. Fogust in Acadia
@ the summit of Cadillac Mountain Day 1 with extremely low visibility
@ KOA Bar Harbor Woodlands
7. Kickstart the day with a hearty breakfast at Cafe This Way
Wild blueberry pancakes anyone?
8. Day 2: The Gorham Mountain hike
A moderate hike through forests with some elevation gain followed by a descent that then trail the shoreline
9. Otter Cliffs
Lacking in otters, but a sight to see nonetheless
10. Tide Pools
The trail ends near an area well known for its access to tide pools, and we timed our hike to get to the pools around low tide
13. Stopover for some Popovers to warm up after the hike
@ Jordan Pond
14. Before you head back to the camp site make sure to stop for a beer tasting, it's less than 5 minutes from the KOA
@ The Atlantic Brewery; If you have been on a brewery tour before, skip the tour and head to the tasting bar where there will be no competition for refills
15. A Lucky Break
@ the summit of Cadillac Mountain on Day 2; the fog broke for a couple of hours in the late afternoon after the hike for some spectacular views
16. Bar Harbor
Take some time to stroll the streets of bar harbor before heading back home
