An area that we are extremely familiar with. ‘Schooner Head overlook‘ is probably our favorite spot in Acadia. Invariably our first stop. So, we can identify.

It would appear that it was accidental, but they are not sure. He seems to have gone to the overlook ahead of Monday’s snowstorm. I can understand. We have watched storms in Acadia.

Shame. And the 2019 Season hasn’t even started.

Though it was ‘April 3‘ the temperature was just in the 40s Fahrenheit, the ground was frozen and there were plenty of piles of snow. So, it was a treat to see all these fresh flowers outside — albeit under cover. Of course, I could NOT resist. Enjoy. Hopefully Spring will arrive by mid-May 2019.

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.
