Acadia Carriage Roads

We did a good long walk this morning, parking at the visitor center well before 0800 to set off on one of the carriage roads. These narrow roads, closed to motorized traffic, offer walkers, runners and cyclists a variety of routes with smooth surfaces.

We had the path to ourselves for the first hour, and then joggers and cyclists started to overtake us. At one of the scenic bridges, we saw our first other leaf-peepers. This is a thing, by the way, we even saw a vanity licence plate LEEF P-PR, at one of our hotels.20141011_073104It was cool (3°C) and cloudy today. Fall colours were lovely, but the sun refused to shine. If we could have done this yesterday…

Our walk took an hour and three-quarters to complete, which puts it in the league of one of my longer weekend walks at home. But what wonderful scenery. If I lived here, I could walk or cycle a different way every day.
