Acadia National Park, Maine, U.S.

Most of Maine's 47,000 acre Acadia National Park is on Mount Desert Island and several smaller islands, near the town of Bar Harbor. A small section of the park, only about 5%, is located on the mainland. The park is heavily forested, and typifies Maine's rugged coast of huge granite blocks.

We visited the park in the 1970s, and returned for a very short stay in September, 2015. We've posted a two-part article about the trip.
