Acadia transformed. Acadia transformed
Historically, mid-October is peak fall foliage season in Maine’s Acadia National Park. While our flowers are busy blooming, on the opposite side of the equator, the forest canopy is aflame with autumn colour, and here, the highbush blueberries on the forest floor provide an additional splash. Acadia has six marked coastal trails, and our photo today was taken on one of the most popular: Wonderland Trail. It’s just a 2.2 kilometre round-trip, an easy trek for families and casual hikers. Acadia is Maine’s only national park, and it’s easy to see why this landscape was preserved.
