Bubble Pond remains a quiet oasis in the middle of a heavily traveled summer season in Acadia National Park. Perhaps it’s because the tiny little parking lot only holds no more than a dozen cars, or maybe it’s because people are in a hurry to get to a couple of classic park icons about a mile on either side… Jordan Pond to the south and Cadillac Mountain to the north. Whatever the reason, I’m OK with it – this jewel of tranquility can stay quiet forever as far as I’m concerned. In the first image, the setting sun bathes the lower part of the west face of Cadillac in golden light, and in the photograph below you get a simple view of Bubble Pond Bridge, one of the famous Acadia carriage road bridges. It’s August 1st already… where does the summer go?
