The Bridges of Acadia National Park

I always enjoy sharing photos of Maine - I get so many nice comments whenever I feature Skylands, my home in Seal Harbor, or the surrounding areas in Acadia National Park.

Unfortunately, I am unable to visit Maine as much as I would like, but Cheryl Dulong, who works for me at Skylands, loves the outdoors, and often sends me beautiful images taken during her early morning hikes. Recently, she photographed several of "Mr. Rockefeller's Bridges". These bridges, which are located at stream and gorge crossings throughout Acadia's carriage road system, were financed, designed and built by millionaire philanthropist John D. Rockefeller Jr. 

As you will see in the following gallery, each bridge, constructed from hand-hewn local granite, is truly a work of art. Enjoy these photos.
