It Never Gets Old

The two-mile stretch of coast that is part of Acadia National park is one that I hike at least once a week.    I’ve hiked it in snow, in fog, in driving rain, at sunrise, at sunset; and it never fails to soothe me.    But yesterday, Sunday, was one of those “picture perfect” days to hike the Ocean Path.

    Very relaxing looking, but where are all the people from away 🙂

    • I’m findng if you are in and out of the park by 10:00 a.m. you don’t see very many people. I don’t know what the numbers look like, but it has not been as crowded as I thought it would be. The most traffic I’ve encountered was in Southwest Harbor and Somesville!

        I’m afraid we added to those crowds over in Southwest Harbor, but I have to agree… when we came over to the other side of the island rarely did it look really crowded (other than when a cruise ship was in harbor). Having said that, there is hardly a campsite to be had on MDI this weekend, so maybe the later part of the month is when it is going to get really busy.
