Main and the Cliffs of Insanity

Well, wasn’t this just a really long day. I did the long journey up to Acadia national park, and Bar Harbor. On the way, I stopped all over the place, and saw some interesting sights.

Highway 1 goes up along the coast, but you can’t actually see the ocean for 99% of the trip, because Maine is so freaking infested with trees. If I were in charge of Maine, I would cut down all of them, and then sell the ocean view property for a huge profit. Yes, that’s just the kind of evil capitalist I am.

One of the stops along the way was in Searsport, where I found a seawall I thought was interesting. I may be the only person that finds it intersting, but hey, it’s my site. It was built to keep the Atlantic from causing waves in the harbor:

I continued up the coast forEVER until finally arriving at Acadia. I have to admit, I was skeptical, but the park was very nice. Eagle Lake is the biggest lake on Mt Desert Island, and it looks pretty nice. It actually reminds me of Mill Lake in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado.

After that, I went to Jordan Pond, which was anticlimactic after Eagle Lake, and then topped it off by a trip to the top of Cadillac Mountain, which is the tallest mountain in Maine. (Wow, 1300 feet… that’s not even a bump in Colorado) But the view was nice, and I found a fine feathered seagull friend who posed for me on the overlook to Jordan Pond:

Finally at the top, I got to see why people actually make the trip all the way there… the veiw is amazing. You can see the Atlantic feeding into the harbor, and you can see the entire harbor wrapping around the mountain. At the base of the mountain you can see the town of Bar Harbor:

Not bad, huh? As you can see in the distance, the fog is rolling in heavy from the Atlantic. Actually the drive home was somewhat freaky, because these dense patches of fog would come out of nowhere, and suddenly you couldn’t see the Interstate anymore. I wish I could go on, but I am completely tired, and I have a trip out on a boat at 9 in the morning… and it’s 2:40 AM now. Not good. I’ll finish today’s story and put it with tomorrow’s entry. Till then, goodnight.
