I've always wanted to visit Acadia. Since my seventh grade English teacher Miss Rogers spoke of Longfellow, Evangeline, and the descendants ofthe French called the "Acadians," I've wanted to see the marvelous sights of an unspoiled wilderness on the Northeast Coast of the USA.

Never have I seen such jewels of green and azure! Well okay, I have seen some similar beauty before, on our hikes, but these scenes were definitely was among the most gorgeous vistas of peace and grandeur we've enjoyed.

thank you for finding my blog, so that I could come here and see all this beauty!ReplyDelete
Beginning with that striking header-
What inspiring country.
Synchronicity abounds, from the spiral I see hovering by your stock image badge, to Evangeline who's connection to myself is a feature of my post recently "When I was 16."
How delightful to meet!
Aloha from Waikiki;

Why travel the world when I can visit here to see all things great and small!ReplyDelete
what lovely views, it certainly looks like a wonderful place to exploreReplyDelete
Cloudia - Hello to you! I will have to come over to read about that connection!ReplyDelete
Peter - I have actually traveled very little, as i tend to go back to the place that had special appeal for me. Nature is my first love. Nice to see you!ReplyDelete
Crafty Green Poet - I think it's probably just as gorgeous where you live!ReplyDelete
Such a beautiful place! I have never visited although it is only 5 hours or so from where I grew up and spent the first 24 years of life. Interesting how on the east coast of the US, 5 hours is an eternity hardly ever to be driven. Here on the west coast, 5 hours each way is an easy weekend trip. I have even done one day 9 hour round trip drives here.ReplyDelete
Absolutely beautiful and you've made me want to go there myself. Also I love, love, love your new heading it's so cheery and bright.ReplyDelete
Will - The drive was not bad, took about four hours from where we were previously, and the scenery was fine. I have a greater tolerance for all trips made OUT of the Metro area. The further away from traffic, the better!ReplyDelete
tangled stitch - I hope you get to go there one day. It's exquisite. The way Earth was meant to be: brimming with life and diversity--ecosystems galore.ReplyDelete
I'm glad you like my new header. I was afraid it might be so bright as to scare folks away! I like bright color, as you do, but not everyone agrees!
Thanks for visiting! :)
Gorgeous header: loved it :D.
Acadia is a wonderful place: I too am struck by the green and azure in the landscape. And your photos brought Acadia's magic out very nicely. Congratulations.
I will be looking forward to seeing more of your snapshots :D.
Big hug and cheerio
Max - Always good to see you, Max, and I'm glad you enjoyed the photos. I will be over to see what you're up to!ReplyDelete
Kia ora Lynda,ReplyDelete
Just popped in to write Kia Ora!, and have a look at your beautiful trip. As Muir wrote "You have to climb to get the view", and looking down upon all that loveliness is worth the climb. I must write I have been using walking poles for years in the Ruahine, even before my hip got bad. For going down steep terrain, or up unsteady footing, and particularly for crossing rivers. I would be naked without them now. Also have used them for an emergency tent poles, and creating a clothesline for my wet gear. The possibilities are endless. Hope you are well. Kia kaha e hoa.
Kia ora Robb,ReplyDelete
We found them really helpful for the balance part and I can imagine using them in the ways you suggest. But do you think they could help fend off a black bear? Lol...black bears are my cardinal fear.
