Eagle Lake, starting point of a long trail ride. Lotsa hills out there.
These trails are nice: shady and quiet.
Nice bridge. They put some $$ into these Carraige Roads.
A long fast downhill. Let it rolllllllllll
Lots of lake views through the trees.
Eagle Lake. I was bombing down a big hill and screeched to halt to take these next few pics.
Other side of the road. Watch for rocks.
Plenty of birch trees around.
A shady vale around a creek
Close up. This was a nice spot to rest and chill out.
Peaceful spot. Not a sound to be heard.
The creek rolled on, and so did I.
The trail wound upward. Gotta shift mental gears.
The Gate House near Jordan Pond.
The Carriage Roads resume after a water break at Jordan Pond.
Miles and miles and miles....
Another rest stop at the top of a hill
Same spot, looking the other way.
More Bubble Pond
Road and pond.

Beer! Atlantic Brewery, Bar Harbor.
This was Brewhaha #15. We sampled 7 brews, and I bought an 8th.
All were yum.
Too bad they were only small samples.
PRICEY!! But 10% alcohol. And tasty.
The brew menu
The Atlantic Brewery itself.
Back to Acadia for the last 2 hours of daylight
