Our Trip to Maine – Acadia National Park

We just got home from our trip to Maine to visit Acadia National Park and Baxter State Park.  Acadia was truly spectacular with picturesque vistas, sparkling lakes, wildlife and abundant lobster.

June was not the high tourist season so the campground was less than 25% full. We ate lunch at Jordan Pond House... famous for their popovers. We sat outside and had a view of Jordan Pond and watched people trekking off to walk around...
