Well, first and foremost a fond Happy Birthday to a National Park we have visited 11-times (and counting).

Debatable as to what was the more significant centennial — the one in July 2016 when it became a National Monument or toady, when it was upgraded to a National Park.

The ‘Park’ itself commemorated the 2016 birthday. That made sense. Becoming a National Monument meant that it got ‘National’ status and protection. Plus, it was in July which made it a great time to celebrate. A bit difficult to have a birthday celebration in Acadia at the end of February.

But, let’s mark both.
