Acadia National Park

As Acadia's seasons change, so too does this view. Spring signals tightly wound ferns to unfurl their feathery foliage. Warming weather teases luna moths from their cocoons. As long summer days approach, bright green leaves of the birch trees blanket the forest. Fall's chilly temperatures force the leaves of sugar maples and mountain ash to turn orange, red, and yellow. Migrating raptors sweep the mountaintops announcing winter's approach. As frigid weather returns, snowy hillsides hide snowshoe hares and snowy owls moving across the landscape. Look for the diversity of life each season brings to Acadia.
"I frequently tramped eight or ten miles through the deepest snow to keep an appointment with a beech-tree, or yellow birch, or an old acquaintance among the pines."Henry David Thoreau
