A Misadventure through Acadia

In honor of my father’s birthday today, I was reminiscing on a story that happened four years ago. To celebrate our father’s 70th birthday my brothers and I traveled to Maine. We planned a guys weekend of baseball games (Baseball is around the Corner) and traveling through Acadia National Park.  Our adventure began by driving close to the top of Cadillac Mountain and we hiked the rest of the way to the top. Once on top we had a panoramic view of the park.  While exploring the top of the mountain, we decided to hike down to Bubble Lake, and our mother would meet us down there to pick us up. Our descent down the trail began with no issues. We followed the trail markers. I was leading the way and somehow missed a trail marker. I must have been distracted by the surrounding beauty. LOL!!!

Anyway instead of following the established trail, we ended up blazing our own trail down the mountain. It made for quite the adventure. Even though we lost the trail, we knew where we needed to get to and we just kept trekking towards our goal of Bubble Lake. We did eventually make our goal of the Lake and all in one piece. It was a hot and arduous misadventure, but we have a great story to tell everyone.
