Yesterday was a beautiful day for a tradition for H and me - an annual trek up Day Mountain in Acadia National Park. We started out early since it was Saturday and the tourists were sure to be out in full force.
The autumn colors were spectacular, but just a wee bit short of peak in our neck of the woods. The trek is a fairly easy 6-7 mile one, but quite a bit uphill so we got plenty of exercise.
H packed us a lovely picnic lunch which we enjoyed after reaching the summit. Fried chicken, cheese and crackers, fresh fruit and just a little bit of wine! The view of the Cranberry Islands was spectacular although the haze kept the leaf colors from really popping.
