Fall is not my favorite season. I dread the upcoming cold and long for more days of summer heat, green grass, and balmy evenings. But, this fall, my partner and I decided to kick off the season with a trip to Maine. A chance to reconnect with nature, with ourselves, and bid a sweet farewell to the last days of summer. I’m more of a beach-goer and would happily spend each and every day counting sand grains and listening to the waves roll in. But, every once and a while, there’s a place so beautiful that it almost makes me think I could opt for a woodsy retreat as a viable beach alternative. This was my experience at Acadia National Park. The park is full of trails for hikers/ climbers or all levels and there’s enough beautiful landscape to keep everyone happy. We had a chance to hike the Beehive Trail (a fun trail but not for the vertigo-afflicted) and take in the most beautiful views from the top.
What do you do to welcome the fall and reboot?
