Meg and I enjoyed Acadia National Park at the height of fall colors. Shaped by fire, heat, water, and ice, the land is an exquisite tapestry of geologic features formed over five hundred million years ago. A vacation land for the well to do in the early twentieth century, Acadia was recognized as a place for all to enjoy. The National Park was established in 1919. John D. Rockefeller, Jr. planned and donated an extensive carriage road system, which is still actively used today for hikers, bikers, and even carriage riders.
Another tradition that still exists from Acadia’s earliest years are popovers and strawberry jam at the restaurant on Jordan Pond, Jordan Pond itself is a pristine water source that provides water to the park, and offers a wonderful trail around it.
