Our friends Rhonda and Charlie gave us a pass to Acadia National Park for Christmas! We decided to use our pass two days after Christmas. We drove toward Northeast Harbor on Mount Desert Island and hiked around Hadlock Pond. The trail around Hadlock Pond intersects with one of the carriage roads which leads up to Bald Peak.
The hike was ridiculously gorgeous. The day was clear and in the forties. We had an unusually warm Christmas, so many of the plants were still alive and kicking. We thoroughly enjoyed our hike and cannot wait to return to Acadia.
