Mount Hale

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.

Acadia National Park Hiking

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!
