Crossing the Trenton Bridge to Mount Desert Island, the 3rd largest island in New England (behind Martha’s Vinyard and Long Island)

It was July 4th and normally one would expect the campgrounds to be packed, but the approaching hurricane Arthur seems to have scared some folks away so we got lucky and found a great spot in the Seawall campground.

The friendly Ranger who checked us in at Seawall warned me about the approaching hurricane and was kind enough to direct us a site that was on high ground and didn’t have many big trees that could fall on us… After setting up camp the weather was still good so we hit a Lobster Pound in nearby Southwest Harbor.

While waiting for our food Kristhawee got started on his Acadia National Park Junior Ranger book 🙂
