    Acadia National Park, Maine, USA

    June 18, 2015 in the United States ⋅

    Der Acadia NP ist der einzige National Park im Nordosten der USA, dementsprechend beliebt und sehr gut besucht. Das mindert das Natur-Erleben doch deutlich.

    Aber man bekommt hier einen guten Überblick über die zerklüftete Küste von Maine mit den zahlreichen vorgelagerten Inseln. Und Tiere haben wir auch gesehen: Rehe, einen Biber und viele Eichhörnchen ...

    Bisher können wir nur Bilder hochladen, die wir mit dem Handy gemacht haben. Nahaufnahmen von Tieren und Pflanzen gibt's denn irgendwann mal in einer Bildergalerie …

    Acadia Inn

    September 13, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 17 °C

    I really liked this place. Pretty, clean, friendly people and they do extra little touches like movie nights with free popcorn and campfire nights with smores. You really feel comfortable and at home the moment you walk in.

    Breakfast was a choice of Mexican egg wraps, fruit salad, french toast and muffins. Very tasty. O had the egg wrap and a bit of fruit salad and took a blueberry muffin for the road.Read more

    Leider total verregnet hier....wir können nicht viel machen ausser zum nächsten Cafe fahren und uns aufwärmen und warten bis der Regen vorbei ist. Morgen soll es aber wieder besser werden....let`s hope for the best :-)

    Bar Harbor

    April 19, 2015 in the United States ⋅

    Cooler Küstenort im Acadia Nationalpark - Bar Harbor. In dieser Nacht mussten wir sogar die örtliche Polizei um Erlaubnis fragen, ob wir unseren Camper beim Sportplatz aufstellen dürften. Leider sind noch nicht alle Campgrounds offen im April was die Suche etwas schwerer macht. Aber wir haben es überlebt.Read more

    Outdoor restaurant right on the harbour. Beautiful view while we ate. The kitchen is also outside so the restaurant is weather permitting and open till dusk.

    Acadia National Park

    July 3, 2016 in the United States ⋅

    Hillcrest was present in Acadia. Practicing love amongst crazy tourists.
    We discovered that July 4th weekend is their busiest time and this was much busier than expected.

    Kayak trip got cancelled due to high winds. Sad, but made for a slow, relaxing day.

    Acadia National Park, Maine

    July 26, 2016 in the United States ⋅

    We finally got to our first major national park!! Acadia was absolutely gorgeous. It's on a mountainous island off the coast of Maine. What that means for Acadia is that you have a lot of mountains rising up out of a lot of forms of water, which makes for some spectacular views and great hikes. We were only there for a couple of days, so the only true hikes we did were Jordan Pond loop, the Bar Harbor tidal island hike, and the South Bubble Mountain hike, all of which were beautiful. The Bar Harbor island hike is one that you can only do at low tide, as the path to the island is submerged at any other time. Jordan Pond hike was peaceful and lovely, but South Bubble was our favorite- we loved hiking to the top of the mountain and seeing the mountains, lakes, and ocean all around us!

    Some of the other things we got to do were take a drive through the whole park, explore Cadillac mountain (twice- once during the day, and once for the sunrise. During the fall and winter, the top of Cadillac is the first place in the US to see the sunrise!), saw Thunder Hole and clambered around on the cliffs, swam in Echo Lake (coooold!), walked down Sand Beach, looked for peregrine falcons at Precipice cliff, and walked down to Bass Harbor Head Lighthouse.

    And since we're in Maine, there's also a lot of lobster! We got 4 dishes with lobster in it- including Paula Deen's favorite lobster mac and cheese, my first lobster roll, and whole boiled lobsters twice. We learned our lesson after the first time and, instead of paying $25 for one lobster with butter, just went to the grocery, paid $12 per lobster including them cooking it for us, and cooked ourselves some corn and potatoes in old bay seasoning real quick. Pro tip to everyone else, that's the way to go!

    Finally, if nothing else, go to Acadia for the stars. I've been to some remote places, but I've never seen so many stars in my life. Seeing the band of the Milky Way wasn't a challenge, it was practically the brightest thing in the sky. We saw shooting stars nearly every time we looked up. We were lucky enough to get two perfectly clear nights, and I could have stayed out there for hours.

    ENDLICH....das Warten hat sich gelohnt. Heute ist das Wetter super und wir können endlich den Hike zum Mount Cadillac im Acadia NP machen. Die Belohnung war eine super 360 Grad Aussicht von oben.
