Example text

I spent one idyllic afternoon atop Cadillac Mountain watching cumulous clouds build into small storms as one rain shower after another marched down Frenchman Bay. Finally, in the early evening, the sky cleared to the northwest, the sun appeared, and the last of the showers over the bay produced this lovely rainbow. Autumn washes Mount Desert Island with glorious color. Maple, ash, beech, and birch brighten the shore of Little Long Pond. Black huckleberry is anything but black in October, blazing among the granite outcroppings of Gorham Mountain.

A clearing storm reveals Western Mountain on the far side of Brook Harbor Marsh. The western side of Mount Desert Island is not as dramatic as the heavily visited eastern side, but it has its own subtle beauty. High tide fills Ship Harbor, a shallow basin that becomes a large mudflat at low tide. The nature trail flanking this small inlet on the southernmost tip of the island is a favorite with birders. To the east of Ship Harbor, Bennett’s Cove lies at the end of the park’s Wonderland Trail. Shrouded in fog, the quiet cove seems to perch on the edge of a vast, open ocean, but soon the obscuring mist will lift to reveal superb views of Great Cranberry and Duck islands a couple of miles offshore.

As evening descends and the afternoon winds subside, the barely rippled surface of Eagle Lake reflects (from left to right) Cadillac, Pemetic, the Bubbles, Penobscot, and Sargent mountains. This view from the north shore of the lake encompasses good examples of the U-shaped cuts between the peaks carved by the last glacier. Valleys eroded by running water show a V-shaped profile. The long, gentle northern slope of Cadillac Mountain seen in the distance is also a result of the mile-thick sheet of ice that bulldozed its way through this region twenty thousand years ago.
