Trip to Mount Desert Island yesterday.
The politics around the National Parks depressed me,
but I was glad to be there, near Eagle Lake, Autumn at its finest.
It's one of my favorite spots in the whole world.
I felt bad that visitors from away were missing
the closed Park Loop Road of Acadia National Park.
Glorious, up close &...
...far away......Sweet slow pace at Eagle Lake. It has always been that the interior Carriage Paths & trails attract the quieter walkers, sitters, bike riders while the Park roads, accessible by motor car, draw a noisier sort of visitor, & a larger quantity. This year, they either didn't come, or perhaps many of them were in Bar Harbor, a noisy little tourist town if ever there was one.
