Take a Hike!

Bar Harbor, Maine – Day Two

We stayed in a random motel last night because everything in Bar Harbor was full! Because of that…the breakfast pickings were gross slim. We stopped in a little convenience store for breakfast supplies on our way in to Acadia National Park.DSCN6938

Orangina, Chobani and PB sandwiches.

We walked the coastline to check out the beautiful views before we headed out on our hike. DSCN6950 DSCN6951 DSCN6952 DSCN6954 DSCN6955 DSCN6956 DSCN6958 DSCN6959 DSCN6963

We all had a banana to fuel up for the hike! The Park Rangers told us both Dorr and Cadillac Mountain were “moderate” hikes. We later came to find out they were both listed as STRENUOUS! Yowzas.

Cadillac (1,530 ft.) was so tough that I didn’t take any pictures until we reached the top!
