Hi Everybody! I just returned from a week’s vacation on Mount Desert Island, Maine. I had an amazing time, despite the %$@##!! government shutdown.
Since I tend to plan my vacations around national parks so I have possible photographic and writing material for the National Parks Traveler, I wrote up an article about a sea kayak tour I took with the hopes of seeing Acadia National Park from that vantage point.
Here is the link to get to that article.
By the way, the Traveler is having a membership drive. You should go check them out. There are always timely articles about the national parks (by that, I mean other articles in addition to my own wonderful contributions – grin) and a number of agencies have ads for discounts, etc on this site. Might help you plan your own trip to a national park (when the shutdown ends, that is – or, at least to a national park in Utah, where state funds are paying for the parks’ maintenance).
