When we began traveling Acadia National Park was touted as “The Best National Park”. It was put on our bucket list. This week we were able to finally visit the park.
The views are pretty stunning. A great contrast of green, blue and sandy tans.
Rocky shores with waves tumbling over. Nature at its finest.
Atlantic Ocean can be seen for miles and miles. Blue, so blue.
And shoreline that reminds me of home.

About the Park
In 1913, President Woodrow Wilson set aside 6000 acres (within what is now Acadia National Park) as Sieur de Monts National Monument. With the acquisition of more land and private support and funding, in 1919 President Wilson signed an act establishing Lafayette National Park. In 1929 the parks name was changed to Acadia.
Today the park is about 35,000 acres of seacoast, rocks, trees, trails and natural beauty. It is a mixture of public lands and private lands. The park is located on Maine’s Southern seashore.
