I’d planned on two days for Acadia and Cadillac Mountain. But we’d done it in less than a day so an early drive from Bar Harbor to Augusta, the state capital. A pool afternoon to come in the 35 Celsius heat then!
The two hour drive revealed rather a lot of trees by the highway. At this time of year they’re as many shades of green as I’ve seen. New England in the fall is doubtless as spectacular as they say, when the autumnal browns take hold.
But in June it is perhaps a little predictable to this Englishman. Beautiful to a point. But maybe not different enough to wow me.
Still, the quiet and open roads remain. My love of the American highways rekindled after the stress of city driving. And free parking is back in play!
