Officially, per the National Park Service, it is now winter at the ‘Acadia National Park’ though they ruefully note “As of Tuesday, December 1st: We have yet to receive any snow in the majority of the park. There is some ice on the tops of mountains and trails”. To be fair to them this is probably atypical. Per tradition road closings, in particular the iconic ‘Park Loop Road’, kick in on December 1 (irrespective of actual road conditions) and stay in effect until April 14.

And that is the case now, and I received an ‘alert’ as such from my ‘Acadia’ APP on my Android Pad.

Two sections of the ‘Park Loop Road’ are however open. A short section, known as ‘Ocean Drive’ between Sand Beach Entrance Station and Otter Cliff Road and Jordan Pond with access from the ‘Stanley Brook Entrance‘ at Seal Harbor. The ‘Ocean Drive’ section will give you access to ‘Thunder Hole‘.

All the carriage roads are OPEN and Route 3 that cuts across the Park and then then traverses the western perimeter of the eastern section of the ‘Mount Desert’ part is open.

We have never been to Acadia in Winter. The latest we have been is September and the earliest, June. I would like to go and I know the kids will jump at it. They are Acadia addicts. I don’t think we can do it this month or in early January. Just too much going on. But I might try to get up there, for a quick weekend break, in late January or February. Of course I will share with you. I know that most of the Bar Harbor hotels, including our now preferred ‘Wonder View Inn‘, is closed for the Winter. But I am sure there are a few open and then there is always Ellsworth — Maine’s fastest growing city.

I took the above three pictures on Sunday, September 6, 2015, at ‘Thunder Hole’, Acadia National Park. It is part of a rock formation to the right of ‘Thunder Hole’ (looking towards the Bay). No, you can’t see it, as such, from the steps or the walkway. Well, we don’t, when we are at Acadia, just stick to the well-trodden paths. We do like to clamor among the rocks and cliffs — and, in case you are wondering, you are permitted to do so, at will, albeit at your own risk. Teischan, of late, really has become addicted to rock clamoring and rock climbing. Most of the time I am trying to keep up with her. So it is she who finds these interesting places on the rocks.

You can’t deny that there is a definite resemblance. I recognized it at once. So I wanted to share it with you. Enjoy.
