High on Beech Mountain

This morning we took a hike up to the fire tower on top of Beech Mtn. in Acadia National Park.

Although sunny, it was a bit brisk and blustery with the late autumn winds during our ascent to the top. From where I stood to admire this scene, it almost looked like a painting to me, rather than real life.

Huffing and puffing, we're almost there.

Hey, wait up Henri!

You can see such a great distance from the top, that without the benefit of a panoramic camera, this picture just doesn't do it justice.

Here's the view from level 1 of the fire tower which was the highest level that was open.

This is on the way back down.

Close to the bottom, we met a couple of doggies that were just heading up to the top.

We found out they were around our age (in dog years). Piece of cake!

I love your environment! It's wonderful to explore the world, where we are. You live in a place of such stunning beauty.
