Acadia Mountain to St. Sauveur

This winter has been unseasonably warm, and the lack of snow is kind of depressing. Willow and DD decided to search for snow, and we found it in Acadia National Park! This is a great hike from Acadia Mountain to St. Sauveur. We started our hike on Acadia Mountain and then headed over to St. Sauver. This trail is a nice day hike, with great views of Somes Sounds and  Echo Lake. Spoiler Alert: This blog post is more photo oriented, so my apologies for the large photos.  Also, DD used her old brand of Of Remarkable Times to brand the photos, so that’s what that means. We went a little crazy with the GoPro. Scroll down to the bottom for more details!
