The alluring powers and untamed presence of the oceans waves have recked havoc on many ships that shift and tumble at sea. Come to New Englands coast and experience unbridled fun, shifting sands and rocky ledges as you race from one lighthouse to the next. Many of these lighthouses are often in beautiful or rugged-pretty shape. Some of the lighthouses are far off the coast putting them in some tough and dramatic locations. These lighthouses serve as a link to our past. As you visit each lighthouse you will learn about heartbreaking tragedies and great heroism by the keepers and their families. These lighthouses have proven to us that time after time they can still stand what mother nature throws at them.

These lighthouses were built in the 1800’s. Each lens is made out of a Fresnel (pronounced “freh-NEL”) lens. Fresnel lenses are designed to magnify and concentrate light and direct it in a horizontal beam. The height of the focal plane is the distance from the surface of the water to the center of the optic. Since each lighthouse is a different height, the height of the focal plane is different for each lighthouse.

2/3 of Acadia National Park sits on Mount Desert Island with over 50+ luxurious trails to hike. The other 1/3 of the park sits on Schoodic Peninsula and Isle au Haut. There are over 140 miles of short, one-way trails. All the trails at Acadia are intended to be day-hikes because backcountry camping is not permitted within the park boundaries.The trails are maintained by a private endowment, Acadia Trails Forever. Most of the trails are well marked with cairns (small, pyramid-like rock piles) and blue blazed painted onto trees and rocks. Mount Desert Island gets over 2+ million visitors each year. The park and island are nearly split in half by a natural, glacially-carved barrier. This is the only fjord on the U.S. Atlantic Coast. 

If you are just staying for the day, make sure to drive the 27 mile park loop road down the east coast of Mount Desert Island. As you make your way down the coast, make sure to stop at the overlook, sand beach, Thunder Hole, Otter Point, and Cadillac Mountain. Keep your camera ready at all times.
