|Wild daisies are abundant in June, good companions on a solo ride up Day Mountain.|
|A short family ride to explore Cobble Beach, I loved the challenge to balance these interesting Cadillac granite spheres, whereas our children discovered that if you tossed them they ricocheted as if in a giant pinball game.|
Our teens surprised us on the first day: while we set up the tent our boys rode roller coaster style, exploring both campground loops. Eventually my husband and I joined them and exited the campground via a short wooded trail onto the paved park loop, then we all pedaled along the coast. We discovered unique Cobble Beach, a playground of granite spheres.

|Great signage; it would be difficult to get lost in the park.|
|A beautiful stone bridge, one of 16 built between 1917-1932 in Acadia N.P.|
|I leaned over the edge to inspect repairs on the incredible stonework that supports the carriage roads|
|There's never a dull moment on Acadia's paths.|
There's a lot to do and see in Acadia, between hikes, boat tours, beach combing, viewing wildlife, island hopping, or exploring coastal villages - all of which we experienced on this trip - but the carriage roads are what set this national park apart from all the others.
