Trip to Maine - Sunrise on Cadillac Mountain

Submitted by jrb on Wed, 08/10/2011 - 17:28

On our last day in Acadia, Daniel and I got up at 4:00 in the morning to go see the sunrise from the top of Cadillac Mountain.  It's the highest / easternmost point in America, so we were  the first people in the United States to see the sun rise that morning.  Along with the hundred other people that were there, that is.

Daniel took these pictures (except for the one with him in it).

We all hiked from our camp site at the Blackwoods camp ground to the top of Cadillac Mountain and back on the South Ridge Trail (about 8 miles).  Daniel took a bunch of pictures.
