Daily Pics: Great Head Trail in Acadia National Park

by in America, US Road Trip 2014

This is what we’ve been longing for. That moment when the proverbial fog lifts and all the planning, saving, packing, moving, fixing and doing finally makes sense. Out the door by 10.30am which is a small feat with a little baby and an even slower English Hubby. On the Great Head trail an hour later. Even though the actual fog never lifted today, Acadia is still a treasure worth seeing.

Dad and baby at beginning of Great head trail

Excited to get on the right path. Baby Boy O grumbled a little then went to sleep in his carrier

 

Dad with baby hiking through tress

Into the great unknown, praying the little one will cooperate for the next 2 miles

Climbing steadily

Fork in the road, follow the blue markers

 

Baby looking intently

The little one wakes and soaks up the surroundings

Loving the trees that come in all shapes and sizes and angles too

Don’t step back!

Standing tall against the elements

Leading to Sand Beach

Walking the path to the ocean

We made it!

Now that we’ve finished the hike, where’s my milk reward?
