sunrise  Sucess!

I was the first person in our glorious country to feel the beautiful sun on my face this day. One of the most beautiful things iv seen in my life.

North Ridge  Sucess!

Hiked up and back on the North Ridge trail. Fog and light rain completely obscured the summit view. It was still a nice hike with beautiful fall colors.

Nice Sunset  Sucess!

A great family outing, a nice place to catch the sunset.

Range traverse  Sucess!

After failing to climb Cadillac as a kid (accidentally did Pemetic instead), I was eager to give this one a shot on vacation.

My younger cousin and I got dropped off by Hadlock Pond and proceeded over Bald Peak, Sargent, Penobscot, S. Bubble, Pemetic and Cadillac in beautiful weather, ending on the summit where we got picked up. Took about 7 hours--my cousin slowed down a bit toward the end, but did pretty well for his first real hike.

Now I have to come back to try the Precipice! (it was closed while I was there)

Blueberries!  Sucess!

A fun hike up with lots of options for stringing the various trails together to make a day of it.

Empty parking lot!  Sucess!

Did a loop...up Dorr via Ladder, down to the gorge, up Cadallic, down to bubble pond, up Pemetic, down to the pond trail to the cannon brook trail...back to the car. AWESOME day...especially the empty parking lot on Cadillac :)

Many summits  Sucess!

On top several times, but my favorite hike was via the Ladder Trail and Dorr Mountain, then down the South Ridge.

Busy Summit  Sucess!

Just drove to the top because there were a million people at the trailhead. The summit was just loaded with people. Still, it was a nice view and the drive up and down is fun.

Drive up  Sucess!

My last day at the park and decided to drive up to the top due to lack of time. Pretty flat on top and wasn't too crowded.

I heart you, Acadia  Sucess!

Did Otter Cliff, Thunder Hole, Beehive, Champlain Mountain, Huguenot Head, Dorr Mountain and Cadillac Mountain from Blackwoods Campground and back. The march down Cadillac's southern ridge was the highlight of the day. Speechless.

Pansies take the Road  Sucess!

Up the North Ridge. Fun scramble down into the Gorge and down south before looping around to take the Ladder Trail up Dorr. Great place and thankfully the rain held off until Flanders and I got back to the car. (sorry, that is pronounced "cah")

What else are you going to do in Acadia?  Sucess!

Hiked with Brian Jenkins. Went up North Ridge and made a huge loop around and up Door Mountain. Highly recommend going through the Gorge - may add some miles but it was a nice "brook" hike.

Windy up top, but it was dry.

Perfect view on a perfect day  Sucess!

Hit the summit on a beautiful June day. Most of the days we were there it was cloudy/foggy, but on summit day, it was spectacular, with incredible views of the blue water and blue sky. I'll never forget it.

North Ridge Descent  Sucess!

Ignoring the tour bus and drive-up peepers, one actually has a wilderness experience in Acadia. The Precipice route is not for everyone, it's exposed and fun. This park has a dozen good hikes that can be linked together. Awesome sunrises on Cadillac and nearby Sargent Mountain.

Great views of islands off the coast  Sucess!

Easy hike done with my wife. Nice view of ocean and town areas. A little close to summit road in some places.
