We all got out of bed early to catch the first light from the top of Cadillac Mountain in Acadia National Park. As you can see, it was well worth the trouble!
Making a new chessboard so I can easily play at Mittersill. Used oak and mahogany for the contrasting wood colors.
Rebecca and Kate enjoyed the fall colors atop Bald Peak in the White Mountains.
Always enjoy seeing the water, boats and beautiful sky colors in Newburyport as much as I enjoy the architecture in the city.

Another 4000 footer bagged. This one didn’t have much of a view. Scratch that — it didn’t have any view! The circa-1970’s AMC guide talked about a view, but I don’t think the pine trees had grown much at that point.
We have a new addition to our family today. We adopted Arlo Guthrie from Shaggy Dog Rescue. Walter now has a new friend.
Racing sailboats in Nantucket Harbor.
We love visiting Acadia National Park. It has many trails to offer, beautiful scenery and memorable experiences. On one hike we ended up splitting to reach the top of Beehive from two different approaches. I took the Cliff trail up to the Beehive which was a lot of fun. Early in the season many of these steep trails with exposed rock are closed for bird nesting.
We ended up doing a lot of hiking one day — about seven miles!
