Beating the Crowds

As the 4th of July approaches, with comes the “height” of summer and tourist season in Acadia National Park, or as I like to call it:  “my playground”, or “my backyard”.

On this weather perfect day, I wanted to hike along the ocean but as the crowds build, this means getting an early start is all important.

So I managed to be walking by 8 a.m. and encountered only a few people along the way on one of the busiest, if not THE busiest trail in the park.
