It's a good thing we didn't try to watch the sunrise from Cadillac Mountain at Acadia National Park this morning or we'd have been sorely disappointed! A thick fog greeted us as we hit the road at 7:00 am!
None the less, the park was incredibly beautiful and barely populated at that early morning hour, allowing us free reign to gather some incredible pictures!
We marveled at Thunder Hole, so named because of the "thunderous" sound that is made when just the right sized wave rolls into the naturally formed inlet!
We continued along the Park Loop Road to Otter Cliff, one of the highest Atlantic coastal headlands north of Rio de Janeiro! Unfortunately the fog prevented us from capturing the full view!
As we looped around north toward Jordan Pond, the fog started to thin out a bit, giving us hope for a better view from atop Cadillac Mountain!
The elevation at Cadillac Mountain is 1,530 feet, the highest point along the North Atlantic seaboard, and the first place the sun rises in the US during the fall and winter months!
Again, time was not our friend, as we had a l o n g drive ahead to Montreal! We couldn't leave Maine without one more taste of lobster, and some roadside wild blueberries for the trip up north!
Right about now I'm wishing I took French in high school! Plus demain! (More tomorrow!)
