Acadia National Park and Cadillac Mountain, Maine

Now the sun is rising on our time around Mt. Desert Island. Our cabin was located across from the island, on a peninsula in Hancock, Maine. I had always heard great things about Moxie, so naturally I had to pick up a case. My only regret is that I did not take a case of it home. Great stuff! It tastes like a cross between Birch Beer and Ginger Ale. 
Here is the view of Mt. Desert Island from near our cabin.
Now we enter into Acadia National Park, by way of the Jordan Pond House, a restaurant that traces its roots back to the 1870s. It is located at the end of Jordan Pond, an 187 acre lake that reaches depths of 150 feet. The two mountains seen in the distance in this shot are known as "The Bubbles."
Here is the view from the other end of Jordan Pond, where you can see me looking towards the Jordan Pond House.
The forests in these National Parks are always stunning. It is great to see these undisturbed and pristine forests.
Now ascending Cadillac Mountain, in the car this time.
Simply stunning views. 
The view of the many small islands in Bar Harbor
A cairn on one of the trails leading up the mountain. I decided to experiment a little bit and do a test hike a little ways down the mountain.
The vista from Cadillac Mountain is absolutely spectacular. The highest point on the Eastern Seaboard truly shows the majesty of nature.
The rock scrambles are pretty awesome, and especially awesome to hike on.
Off I head on my little hike for the day
There's Brit taking in the sights
Straight boulder hiking, my favorite kind of hiking.
I got down far pretty quick! 
Brit is up there somewhere.....
Now heading back down Cadillac Mountain. Such an awesome place to just cruise around driving.
