Maine-ly Acadia National Park on Market Friday

avatar
(Edited)


0P2A8836 maine.JPG


Welcome to Maine! This is just a tiny piece of the dramatic coastline that is part of the Acadia National Park. In actuality, it has a 64-mile coastline and this is just a sample of it. It is located on Mount Desert Island and shares borders with the coastal town of Bar Harbor. It is often photographed and on my list of most visited by my family. I like to stand on the rocks, daring the waves to crash around me.


This relationship benefits both. Bar Harbor is known as the Gateway to Acadia and people come to Bar Harbor as a jump-off to the park. There are views that are proliferating in the shadows of the rocky cliffs, the waves constant motion eroding them, changing their look.


Below is a map of the area, hopefully making it easier for you to see where I am talking about. It is an island as you can see, with quaint little fishing villages all around. I go there a few times a year, just because it is pretty, peaceful and they have the prettiest leaves in the Autumn. Road trip to Bar Harbor!! Who's in?

Today is #MarketFriday initiated by @dswigle (Denise, that's me!!) Join me as we share our markets across the globe. I always look forward to seeing what you send me! It is amazing to see the different markets and cultures of our friends here on Hive.

Some days, the market won't be apparent, like today. However, there is an entry fee to get into the park, so, it is a service that is paid for. The term market can be a little deceiving. :))

Acadia has pink granite! See below? That is granite. The entire area is granite, mixed with forests of spruce trees and pitch pine. It is more beautiful in person, but, of course it is not nearly the finished product.

The Cadillac Mountain Granite is amongst the largest bodies of granite on the island, and it is also one of the oldest in the region (~420 million years old). Younger, dark-colored igneous dikes (diabase) cuts across lighter-colored intrusive igneous rock (granite) As read on the National Park Sign.

This is one of the views of Cadillac Mountain, and, at 1,530 feet (466 meters), is the highest point on the North Atlantic seaboard. A little-known fun fact? It is the first place to see the sunrise in the United States, but you have to do that between the dates of October 7 and March 6th. Before or after that time, all bets are off.


#15.JPG


One of the most striking surface features you notice on Cadillac Mountain are the deep scratches or gouges in the bare granite that seem to follow north-south directions. The reason is quite simple. This area has undergone millions of years of climate changes during which there were several enormous continental glaciers that squashed the land and sheered off mountaintops. The last glacier retreated about 18,000 years ago, was over 1 mile high, and reached as far as 400 miles out to sea. It was so powerful that it actually shifted the orientation of the mountains from east-west to north-south. Well before these events, 360 - 380 million years ago during a time referred to as the Devonian Period, volcanic forces were at play. The magma chamber of a volcano collapsed. What is now seen as the summit of Cadillac Mountain is actually one edge of the collapsed volcano. source

This Thunder Hole. Water is forced into his small cave. When the wave comes crashing in, forcing its way, the water sprays all over, I was standing 25 feet away and got soaking wet. No notice. :)) High tide or stormy weather makes it dangerous. You can watch the video at the bottom of the post.

Acadia is actually in a transitional zone of two ecoregions, the northern boreal forest, and the eastern deciduous forest. They also have places that have other hardwoods such as oak, beech, and maple there. What is boreal? It is a forest that is characterized by its varied coniferous type of trees. Many things about the area are distinctive, including the types of animals found there, birds, and some unique plants. It is unique in the fact that there is also a traditional forest and the two blend in perfect harmony.

STOP!! BRAIN TEASER AHEAD!!


Question: What kind of trees do you get when you plant kisses?

Answer! Can you guess??? Tulips (two lips) I'm sorry! I couldn't resist!

Excuse me? Can someone follow those lobster pots! Bait your pot with salted herring. Make sure to put the dried fish in a lobster bag, which is just a mesh bag tied, which you need to tie to the inside of the pot. Good luck!

More raw granite. I say raw as it has a process before you can lay that on your countertop. But, in person, it is the prettiest shade of pink. The Smithsonian’s Hirshhorn Museum in Washington, D.C. is doing a facelift after fifty years. They used the pink granite that is from one of the quarries up in the area. There is only a handful of them and it is this special granite that they used and want to replace with the same.


IMG_5087.JPG


Rules of the Road

  1. Go to the market, or anywhere that you pay money for a service.
    Take pictures! Be creative!
  2. Tell us a little bit about the market or the event. What brought you there? What did you buy? How much did it cost?
  3. Post the picture(s) Of course, you should tell a little bit about the ones you post
  4. Use the MarketFriday Community Platform to post #hive-196308 (this is not required, but appreciated)
  5. Drop the link into the MarketFriday comment section so I can find it
  6. Following me and reblogging the post so more see it would be appreciated !! Not a rule, just appreciated, more vision for more views on your posts!
  7. You must put #MarketFriday by @dswigle somewhere on your post. If you don't and someone reads it, there is nothing to tie #MarketFriday to that post.
  8. Please only one post each week. Believe it not, I run out of voting power if you put in many more than that.

Over 20% of Acadia is classified as wetland. It is not just relegated to wetlands. There are swamps, bogs. and many marshes. It makes their florals and fauna interesting.

Here you go! Take a few of these Marsh Marigolds

If you go into Bar Harbor, stop at Into the Woods 160 Main St. downtown. Everything is handcrafted using felled trees. The proceeds are put toward preserving Maine woodlands as wildlife and nature.

The merchandise was pretty incredible. I loved the birdhouses, but, really wanted to take the canoe home. They made dishes, bowls, and even a giant rocking horse that babies to grannies had to give a go to it. Before you ask, yes, I did. It was pretty tall and yes. I loved it.


IMG_4722  maine.JPG


Cannons were temporarily placed near the harbor at Egg Rock Island. A battery was established to protect the entrance to Frenchman Bay and the harbors of Bar Harbor and Winter Harbor. They make a great photo op too.

I want to thank you for coming along to Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park with me, There is so much more to see and do, you will never run out of things if you stayed there a year. It is a cute little town, but, the hiking is great here and the history is steep. I hope you get to check it out someday. If you do, there is one coffee shop in town and it has 3 tables and six seats. Be early and be friendly. :))

And just like that, this post is done. I hope you had a good time and learned a little something new. As always, I want to thank you for taking the time to visit, and just remember, #MarketFriday loves you! Thank you for supporting the challenge! Have a most fabulous day! Cheers!!


As always, there must be flowers to color my world. #alwaysaflower

The Yellow Ladies Slipper. North America has only one wild native orchid. She is beautiful. Also known as a Moccasin Flower.

Well worthwhile paying to enter parks like this, seeped in beauty well maintained for everyone to enjoy, which reminds me most of our parks are paid parks too!

Lovely granite rock formations, water thundering below steep cliff, nice wood carvings to consider to purchase to take home with you as a reminder of a remote island rich in nature.

It is such a beautiful place, the water crashing against the rock, spraying everything in its' path. The pink granite is so much prettier in person, I was sorry it didn't come out better, but, perhaps next time, I will have better lighting.

The wood store is such an incredible place with a worthy mission, so I always like to go in and check them out. I want to thank you so much for always stopping by and leaving your words... and your tipu curation is so appreciated! Thank you so much!

#MarketFriday loves you!

A place I would thoroughly enjoy watching the water crashing in, the rocks do look fascinating. Photography never quite captures what the eye sees.

Stores with handcraft work from natural products always end up an adventure seeing how people use what they find.

Distant shores look welcoming, I know we have beauty here, now I long to move, experience more desolate places. Have a wonderful weekend Denise.

Hello beautiful step before starting to work.
I'm not going to go to that park alone, when I get closer I want you to accompany me, okay?
It is beautiful and I love the pink rocks and the wildness of the sea.
I have also been sprayed by the waves without realizing it, at first you get scared then you laugh and then you freeze haha how many emotions.
Those places are magical, so many things to appreciate and the sea, I would love to meet it and meet you although I think I know you something hahaha.
Some lobsters to eat? I have only eaten once in Egypt, here they are very expensive so we make do with the prawns hahaha
Question: What kind of trees do you get when you plant kisses?
Although here as you know there is a lot of tree I think that with a kiss I would grow ginkgo biloba
It is a tree that fascinates me so beautiful its fan-shaped leaves.
Well, pretty, I'll give you my ticket and I get to work
Happy Friday

Hello Beautiful! I love when I am surprised by the splash of the sea! I think when the sea calls and you don't answer, it tries to get your attention! It is so pretty there with all the wildlife and flowers. The trees, so many different kinds.

It is the pink granite (rocks) that I love about the Park. I had only seen it in the Smithsonian Museum... and guess where they mined it? At ACADIA! I know this because they will be renovating and they have come back for more. There are not many places that have natural pink granite.

I do love the ginko balboa! It is such an interesting tree! Do they have them near where you live? I have none here. :)

I want to thank you for such a wonderful post every week almost! Thank you for stopping here and dropping your link!

Of course, lobster!!! Who can go to Maine and not have a lobster? All the lobster shacks on the coast? Pull up anywhere and they will throw one in the post for you.

Maine is very scenic, but, it doesn't have the amazing memorable stuff that tourist look for. Maybe now, if you like nature. But, not when you were a studenT. Hi, Ace!

Aww, Acadia... I was there in the summer of 2010, long before I started to be interested in photography so the only picture I have from there is this random miserable blurred shot of the rocks.

But I still remember how beautiful this place was. Thanks for sharing your amazing pictures from there.

That looks about how mine did too. I loved to vacation and travel and used to buy postcards because pictures from a cheap camera were terrible.

It is a really beautiful place, especially for someone who loves nature as you do. Thanks so much for sharing your story and for stopping by and leaving your words. The picture is hilarious, I have a million just like it. Have a great day!

BTW @phortun, I was shocked you were able to locate a shot of it so quickly. I have been taking pictures much less time than you and it takes me forever to find anything.

How unorganized! How do you file them and do you cross-file them also?

Haha that´s a good question :) Well, as someone with a pretty severe OCD, I generally like to have my stuff organized and ordered :D As far as photos are concerned, I have a separate file (album) in my laptop for every country (in some cases even region or city) that I visit. It´s quite easy to retrieve photos you need then as you know exactly where to reach...

I got into photography at the height of the kid's education and I was homeschooling, so between horse riding lessons, tennis, soccer, boy scouts, girls scouts, explorer club, academic decathlon, football, baseball, Latin club, Spanish club, Officers Wives Club... Oh and running the house, etc... I never got enough time to pretend I was organized.

There was plenty of fun in between, but, totally crazy days.

Once again you surprise with your #marketfriday post, a true travelogue. A journey in a place so beautiful and generous in views and landforms, from the mountains to the ocean. I'm glad I got to see the place you love so much that you go there several times a year. I'd do the same if I were nearby... I didn't understand how far it was from your house.
I really like that you mix up the topics and soften the rules. If there's anything I don't like about Hive, it's the rigid and exclusive communities, so proud of their superiority. Of course, I understand the rationale for having rules and exclusivity but it kind of deviates from the much-vaunted absolute freedom that blockchain offers.
My participation is modest and please believe me it is not false modesty. Lately, I am failing to do what I set out to do.

I do love this place and it is convenient for me to travel there. I go many places several times a year, but, the distance is not great and little planes are the way to get there from here. It's fast and easy.

It is a plane ride or a long trip, at least 10 hours diving. Maybe a little less if there is no traffic.

I am so happy that I can be flexible for the community, after all, things have changed because of Covid and we really have to make some allowances. I have veered off the path sometimes, but, it is that or I have nothing. :))

You are so modest. It is not that you are failing, you are so busy with hands in many pots and you are a perfectionist. I love your posts and you delight me with them every time.

So shhhhh! Let me read it. :) Oh, Dan! @bluemoon Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving your words, and dropping your link. I appreciate it!

Sure, flying is a solution to save time. Otherwise, by car, you take the same time as I do to get to Thassos. It's so nice, one of the ultimate pleasures, to go to places you like, where you meet people you know, where you visit places you can't get bored of! Beyond wishing my close family well, my children to have a beautiful and independent life, for me remains the joy of traveling to places that are close and that I love.
Your post now shows me that you feel the same way.

You know I do! :) Because of work, sometimes a small plane that will get you there in hours as opposed to a whole day or two becomes practical. Otherwise, lack of time would become the reality.

Oh I dont know, looks mighty harsh to me, not to mention chilly. Cold water. Cold granite. Maybe a mosquito haven. Much fun to visit of course, but it would have to be in summertime! However, I do think I should open a coffee shop there. Perhaps partner up with @c0ff33a !! I think it could be a big, big hit :)

Happy to report I have my link in already!

It is actually not harsh at all, but, it is challenging to do some of the hiking. Still in all, it is always fun and the water isn't too chilly yet. Soon!

That was a fun adventure. It's crazy to think about what the glaciers did. Where I am in Colorado was all a good mile beneath a glacier about 10,000 years ago. There is evidence of glacial activity everywhere if you know what you're looking for. So cool.

It is a pretty phenomenal place if you are into nature, which I believe we both are. Thunder Hole is amazing when you're standing right near an end you can hear the water rushing in and crashing on the rocks. There is no way I would want to be in that hole! All in all, it was a wonderful trip and no matter how many times I go there, I just love it!

It is a pretty phenomenal place if you are into nature, which I believe we both are.

Thank you so much for stopping by leaving your words!

I would imagine it would be pretty phenomenal experience, I would enjoy seeing that very much you never know where life can led you, I will place that on my bucket list that's for sure. I have had a pretty busy week and was unable to do a #marketfriday for you but may try to do one tomorrow.

You have a great Sunday @dswigle :)

Indeed it was an incredible experience and one that I would not mind doing it again soon. Of course I say that and I've been there time and time again but it's pretty low-key and so that gives me the incentive to returned again. Loki in that I don't have to make preparations to go. I can just decide to go one day and hop in a little plane oh, and be there in a couple hours. The drive is far too long with too many other commit spot if you have the time it's a beautiful drive. Never worry about the markets because you know I'll be here next week. I do so love what you put in but I also know that you only have so much time on your hands. Balance my friend!

#MarketFriday still loves you!

That really is convenient when you can just hop on a plane at anytime and enjoy a weekend there if, I had more time on my hands, I would be doing that myself as it is no more then a couple of hours flight to any beautiful destination like south or north of Thailand.

Well I did manger to do a #marketfriday today and have dropped the link in your #marketfriday post.

Thank you @dswigle you have a lovely week :)

Such beautiful pics, perhaps the Tourism Board of Maine could use this post 😁. As I was reading the post, I kept wondering if there were gonna be any crabs or crab crates involved. I guess that is my stereotype of Maine, nothing but huge forests and crab fishermen, both perfect subjects for photography.

Yes, my hand is up for a trip to Bar Harbor. As long as there is espresso coffee and yummy food in a cafe or two to be enjoyed in between the shops, National Park and Granite Mountain I can't wait.
Fabulous photos and post Denise, I can see why you come this way a few times or more a year. Wishing you a fun happy day 💜

That little town looks awesome, I've never seen granite in its natural form before looks amazing @dswigle, and the market looks very inviting with all those carved items. Thank you for sharing and congratulations. Love your posts.

Thank you so much for the words, @artywink ! Isn't that town adorable? So walkable and everything you need right there. It is kind of cool seeing all that granite, but, they do have quarry's around there that they take it out of. The granite that is near the coast has gone through so much with the constant water pelting it.

I love the store Into the Woods! I go there every time I am up there. :))Thank you! I was surprised and very pleased to have placed so well.

#MarketFriday loves you!
