We spent a couple hours at the beach in Acadia. The girls were happy to run up and down the beach and to build sand castles.
My Favorite hike of the week was probably this one. I think it was the Emery trail but they were in the process of changing many of the trail names so I'm not positive. It seemed like a lot of trials had one name on the map and another on the trail marker. This hike is a set of steps that go UP behind Acadia's wild plant garden and nature center. All told I think the hike was only a mile but it consists of steps cut out of the granite almost the entire way up. Some of the stairs come up to the middle of a two year old. But we all had a great time and the view was beautiful.
