A Few More From Acadia National Park

On Cadillac Mountain, September 16.

This pond is not quite at the summit, perhaps 1100 feet above sea level.  It seems to be nothing more than a water-filled deep cleft in the granite, not spring fed, though of course I can’t say for sure.  Nothing else nearby suggested a water table.

There’s a road to the top of Cadillac, which explains the crowds.  The two people in the foreground took the scenic route: the South Ridge trail, about three and a half miles from near sea level to 1,570 feet.  Really nice hike.

This herring gull (Larus argentatus) seemed totally happy perched here, about 1,200 feet above sea level.
