Columbus Day 2017 in Maine

Whenever I am in Maine, I love to hike the glorious trails of Acadia National Park.

One of my favorite treks is around Jordan Pond. The pond covers 187-acres, with a maximum depth of 150-feet. It's flanked on the west side by Penobscot Mountain, and to the northeast by two mountains called "The Bubbles". The pond is ringed by a walking trail, which I have done numerous times, and adore. The nearly four-mile hike is an excellent way to see and appreciate Acadia's glacially carved landscape.

I spent a portion of this past holiday weekend at Skylands, my home in Maine. On Columbus Day, Shqipe, Carlos, Fernando, and all five of my dogs, joined me for an early morning walk at Jordan Pond Shore Trail. It was a most exhilarating hike for us all. Enjoy our photos.
