Maine Scenes, No. 2, Acadia

Below are a series of sunrise photos taken from the top of Cadillac Mountain in Acadia National Park, Maine. They say this is the first place the sun rises on the United States.

Wonderful shots. The quintessential "The Sun Also Rises," by Hemingway.

The colours are truly astounding. Loving your blog!

Now, I HAVE been to Acadia National Park, in October, but not at sunrise or sunset. It was a day excursion during our New England/Canada cruise. But I did find out as we were leaving that we were the last group that day allowed in because of snow, as I recall. In October?!

Great photos!

monika, it was glorious to see.

Thanks, windowtomymind, for adding the literary connection. Good to hear from you.

anne, thanks for coming by. I'm glad you're enjoying my blog

Hi ginnie. Snow wouldn't surprize me up in Maine at that time although it is probably more likely a bit later. Glad you enjoyed my photos.

You can't go wrong with a sunrise photo!

Tim Rice said...

Hi san nakji. You're right. At least it would be difficult to go wrong with one.

When I think of Maine I think of summer camp, though I've never actually been to Maine. But still, it seems so ideal and your pictures make me curious to one day visit Maine too!

crystal, I recommend Maine to anybody that enjoys hiking and or camping. There are many scenic and recreational opportunities with its coast line, mountains, lakes, and streams. Go for it; I don't think you'll regret it.
