I had seen the above notice on the “National Park Service” Website before I had set off to Acadia.

I had also read that “Jordan Pond” was open. Though I thought I knew most of the ways to get to the ‘Pond’ I was foiled from getting there the first two days we were there. Then on the third day (i.e., Sunday) I had stopped to ask a Park Ranger whether Schoodic was open. He said it was. I then asked him about Jordan Pond. He told me I had to take “Jordan Pond Road”, off Route 3, in “Seal Harbor”. That worked! I never realized that that was ANOTHER unmarked access to the Park Loop Road.

Jordan Pond was deserted. Saw one other person. We were the ONLY vehicle in the parking lot.

The ground, under a lot of snow until quite recently, was very wet, soft and muddy. It was difficult to venture much.

It is pretty torn up. I guess they could have it relaid by June 2018.

It looks like they are installing buried irrigation pipes. That seems a WASTE. It is NOT like that they do not get enough rain up there.

Anywho …

Just wanted to share with you.

Neato!

I think I know where this mansion is. I think we have even driven by it twice. Kind of hard to miss.

From what I can see it is on the way to our ‘secret’ Cooksey Overlook. Well to be fair ALL the grand mansions are that way.

Click to ENLARGE and study. Seal Harbor is right at the Southern entrance to Acadia National Park — the ‘Stanley Brook Entrance’. See picture below. I marked the POND for reference. This is great. Map, of course, from Google.

Seal Harbor. A delightful place. Nice sandy beach with swings for kids.

Stanley Brook Entrance to Acadia National Park

The Stanley Brook Entrance to Acadia National Park is right there — we are talking yards.

Another Rockefeller gem at Acadia. The ‘Gated Lodge’ opposite Jordan Pond. Built in 1932 to house guards to keep motor vehicles off Rockefeller’s much-prized Carriage Roads.


When I saw this in the “Daily Mail” this morning it made me very happy.

We love Acadia National Park and everything around it. We know Seal Harbor and the area around it, which includes our ‘secret’ Cooksey Overlook, very well.

Maybe they will extend the Park to include this Pond — which is basically south of famed Jordan Pond.

The Rockefellers have done so much for Acadia — the Carriage Roads the most visible.

Good stuff. Made me happy. Rejoice.

Yes, we plan to make one of our twice yearly annual pilgrimages to Acadia National Park soon.
