I've developed a habit of visiting Acadia National Park twice a year, usually in May and October. That allows me to enjoy the park without the hordes of people who descend during the warmer months. I even managed a visit in December one year. I keep dreaming of seeing Acadia in snow but I haven't quite managed a snowy winter visit.
The colors changed as I drove from northeastern Massachusetts to Downeast Maine. For a bit I thought I was too late for good color in the park; I drove through some really bright areas followed by areas with faded leaves and some bare trees. It turned out to be a good color time!
Tuesday morning was driving time.
My first stop in the park was the WIld Gardens of Acadia. There were a few tiny flowers still blooming but most of the garden had a carpet of leaves on the ground.
I headed out on Jesup Path, a beautiful boardwalk trail.
