Here we are touring around Lake George in the Southeast Adirondacks.  We have summited another mountain and we are feeling like real mountain climbers now. Yes, we summited it in the car, but that counts right? This is a far away view of the South end of the lake.

At the summit of Cadillac Mountain they had this nice plaque discussing the history of Acadia National Park and Cadallic Mountain.  Here George Dorr talks with Franklin Lane about the formation if Acadia National Park in Maine.  John S. Kennedy a New York banker had bought the mountain and three others in 1908 and left them in his will to the state for a Park for everyone.

After driving more on the road in Acadia National Park in Maine, we go up the steep road to Cadillac Mountain. Here there were breathtaking views of the Park and the bay beyond. Here you could see Bar Harbor way off in the distance and a Holland America ship anchored offshore.  The red dot was a sailing vessel going by with bright red sails.

Walking down the Carriage trail in Acadia National Park in Maine near Jordan Pond, we come across this tiny brick house. No, it was not one of “those”, but a small pump house along the trail near the water. I liked the way it was made and the design.

On the shore of Jordan Pond in Acadia National Park in Maine, it was amazing to see how stony the shoreline was in areas. In this view we are down low looking at the incredible scenery.  The water is incredibly cold up here and we saw no one going in for a swim.

One of the hidden gems in Acadia National Park in Maine was the Carriage Roads still present and maintained. From 1913 to 1940 John Rockafeller Jr had 57 miles of carriage roads made in what is now Acadia National Park. No motorized vehicles were allowed then or now on them. They are maintained still and have original wide granite bridges and features. You can take carriage or bike rides on them near Jordan Pond and walk along them.
