When you have blue skies like we did last week, you'd be hard pressed to find a bad view in Acadia. Even with just a small amount of elevation in places, we saw an abundance of vistas that just humbled us to our core. We are so small, so insignificant, truly. These preservations of nature take care of themselves just fine, without any help from us (and sometimes in spite of us).
Sometimes our day-to-day responsibilities suggest otherwise, but our most important, overarching job as individuals is being a good steward of The Earth. Getting away from the iron grip of suburbia last week was just the reminder I needed. I put a lot of pressure on myself as it is in terms of lifestyle choices, but I always feel like I can do more. "LEAVE NO TRACE" is a message posted on wooden signs all throughout the park - and now it's playing like a mantra in the back of my mind. Leave no trace... Leave no trace... Leave no trace... (hmmmm. when you type it out like that, sounds like a rehearsal for an upcoming crime spree. my brain fires off in odd directions sometimes.)
Hope you enjoyed the images of our mini-Maine vay-cay tour this past week! Just wanted to share some of this awesome beauty with folks who might appreciate it!
