After crossing the state line into Maine we made quick time as we headed for the coast. We were aiming for Mount Desert Island, around 245 miles from our Crawford Notch campsite. As I write, we are about to spend our second night on the ‘quiet side’ of the island, at Bass Harbour campground, right on the edge of Acadia National Park.
Today we’ve had a lovely day exploring the island. We visited Bar Harbor and had one of Maine’s delicious lobster rolls before taking the loop Road through the national park. We took the road up to the top of Mount Cadillac, which was incredible, less dramatic and alarming than the Mount Washington route and yet offering some more amazing views. Had we more time, we would definitely have hiked within the park and got to know it better. Instead, once more, we were just passing through.
We are now around half way through our adventure and tomorrow morning we will be heading south to see some more of the beautiful coast of Maine.
