I just got back from a wonderful, and much needed, summer vacation with the family. This year we visited Maine, hiking Acadia and thoroughly enjoyed the Atlantic Ocean and the lakes. It was a great way to reconnect and the time spent outdoors left me inspired.

People have been drawn to the rugged coast of Maine throughout history. Awed by its beauty and diversity, early 20th-century visionaries donated the land that became Acadia National Park. The park is home to many plants and animals, and the tallest mountain on the U.S. Atlantic coast. Today visitors come to Acadia to hike granite peaks, bike historic carriage roads, or relax and enjoy the scenery. I would highly recommend a visit!
