When we arrived in Bar Harbor, we were greeted with a rainbow which is shown in the following photo. The rainbow is faint, but it can be seen if you look for it on the right hand side of the snapshot.

At the end of the day, were treated to a bright moon that was reflected on the water in the harbor.

The next morning, there was a picturesque sunrise which almost resembled a sunset in appearance!

The first spot we visited was Jordon Pond where there is a scenic view of South and North Bubble at the end of the pond (see next 2 photos).

The next photo is just a spot along the shoreline of Jordan Pond that I thought was attractive.
Nothing special, just a picturesque vista along Jordan Pond
Following our hike around Jordan Pond, we drove to the top of Cadillac Mountain. Among many nice views, there was a vista of the town of Bar Harbor.

The areas of the park named Sand Beach and Great Head were next on our agenda. From the Great Head Trail, there is a view overlooking Sand Beach. The little rounded mountain with all the bare rock is called The Beehive.

Not far from The Beehive, bees were busily feasting on the wildflowers. What could be more appropriate?!

The next 3 photos are of nothing in particular. They are merely included to show off the autumn colors that we experienced in this area.

The next snapshot was taken from the south end of Bubble Pond looking northward.

Shown in the next photo is what I think might be a portion of North Bubble on the horizon with the cliffs of Conners Nubble in the foreground. The snapshot was taken from the east shore of Eagle Lake at its southern end.

There are a lot of Jack Pine trees at various locations in Acadia National Park. Jack Pine can be found in New Hampshire, but it is rare.

And speaking of trees, there is nothing particularly special about the next photo. It just shows one of the hiking trails in Acadia that winds its way through a forest of white birch.

And what's up with this next photo?! Well, it was amusing to see a gull perched atop a car, and it seemed like as good a way as any to end this report!
To sum it up, if you've never visited Acadia National Park, it's a very worthwhile destination. My wife and I had been here several years ago, but it was still a treat to visit this scenic spot once again.
