The Acadia journey continues. This time leaving the low lands and ponds of the interior to the mountains and high mountain peaks of Acadia's interior. Cadillac Mountain, one of the highest peaks on the East Coast is a great place to watch both the sunset rise and set. This photo is taken of the setting sun looking across the lands, hills and lakes and ponds to the interior of Maine.
From the summit of Cadillac Mountain you have a 360 degree view, north, south, east and west. Every view paints a different picture of Maine's diversity from its forests and ponds to the west to its many bays and ocean inlets to the north, to the vast ocean to the east and further bays and islands to the south Main coast.
On the top of Cadillac Mountain, hard granite rock, strong winds and cold temperatures shape the trees and terrain of this high alpine landscape.
On the summit of Cadillac Mountain, snow, ice, rain, wind and sun sculpt, form and shape the hard granite rock into works of art.
It is always sad to say goodbye to such a beautiful place especially on a long timeless summer day. Goodbye Cadillac Mountain. I hope to return again soon.
