October 6th – Leaf-Peeping in Bar Harbor
It appears that it's been an unusually warm summer up here, so the leaves are changing a little later than usual; but, even though the leaves aren't yet in full colour, there's still a fair amount of flaming reds and bright oranges to be seen amongst the densely forested hills of the island.
The fog that had been following us has lifted a little, but not as far as the top of Cadillac Mountain, which was blanketed in fog, which made our trip up there to enjoy the views a little redundant. However, at sea level, the countryside was typically beautiful – wild coastlines, thick forests reflected in clear lakes, and gentle green hillsides.
This is a stunning part of the world – fingers crossed that the weather will allow it to live up to its potential when we get back here in a few days time.
