New England, 2022 and 2023


And now for some more photos from my backlog.

Melissa and I made two trips to New England over the last year and a half. The first took us to Providence, Rhode Island; Lost River Gorge, New Hampshire; Mount Washington, New Hampshire; and Plymouth, Massachusetts. The second took us to various sites in Maine, including Bangor, Bar Harbor, Acadia National Park, Cadillac Mountain, and the waters between Maine and Nova Scotia, Canada.


Lost River Gorge

The Lost River Gorge and Boulder Caves is a privately owned nature park that includes a boardwalk for hiking through the gorge, numerous caves and waterfalls, overlooks, and more. It is located near North Woodstock, Maine.

Acadia National Park

Acadia National Park is located near the city of Bar Harbor, Maine. It includes lakes, mountains, beaches, rocks, and trees. During our visit we spent time at Jordan Pond, Monument Cove, and Cadillac Mountain.

Bass Harbor

We also visited the Bass Harbor Head Lighthouse, which is part of Acadia National Park but is pretty far away from the main area of the park. There’s a lighthouse and some rocks.

Whales, Etc.

We went on a whale watching tour with the Bar Harbor Whale Watch Company. We saw whales . . . and puffins, and porpoises, and a rare basking shark. Good stuff.

More Etc.

Finally, some random photos from the trip, including from the top of Mount Washington and me standing with the statue of my great (x9) granddad.
