Jockey Cap

October 19, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

Jockey Cap is a small hill that looks over the town of Fryeburg. If you run up, it takes five minutes, but you will be out of breath. One side has a ledge cliff and there is a monument on top.

A faint sundog.

The Moats are in the background and North Conway, New Hampshire is in the next valley closer, but not visible. Sherman Farms in East Conway, New Hampshire is visible to the left.

This is a sample from Acadia National Park, but it does not show any of the highlights.

Bar Harbor, low tide

Bar Island from Cadillac as the tide is coming back in.

The Schoodic Peninsula and Egg Rock Light from the top of Cadillac.

And, finally, Somesville:


These photos hardly do it justice, but I'll have to get back to Acadia soon.

Cobscook Bay S.P. & Cutler

Cobscook Bay State Park is this hidden gem of a campground Downeast -- if you like privacy, isolation, shaded trees, and the sea.

How many campgrounds have sites that have a footbridge to them?

The next hidden spot we visited was near Cutler. But I don't know that I'll tell you where. The distant hurricanes must have brought the offshore clouds and the pounding surf.

A purple rock?
