Today’s miles away pictures are from a recent trip to Bar Harbor, Maine. Bar Harbor is to Acadia National Park what Gatlinburg is to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. A tourist town on the edge of great beauty.
In the picture above you can see the little village nestled against the harbor. See the sand bar to the left and the breakwater to the right? Thus the name.
Acadia is an incredible quirk of geology and glacial forces. Mountains, cliffs, lakes and crashing surf, and America’s only fiord.
Any day is a good day in Acadia, rain or shine. A walk along a balsam-scented ocean path takes you away.
Back in Gatlinburg, please stop in and visit me to see the complete display of Smoky Mountain Photography at the William Britten Gallery.
