Did you know the Rockefeller family was also instrumental in establishing a National Park in Wyoming? Can you guess which one? I'll put the answer at the end of this post but onto to Bar Harbor or as they say in Maine - Bawh Hawboor. :)
|The Bar Harbor Inn. Nope didn't stay there and I bet it was pretty pricey to stay here.|
|A cruise ship and a sailing vessel in the Harbor. Note the dock full of seagulls!|
|The Bar Harbor Wharf. They have Puffin and Whale Tours off this wharf. Would be fun to take if we ever make it back!|
|It said on the wharf you can walk over to the big island in the background during low tide. I imagine one would need to know when high tide was going to occur before undertaking such an adventure!|
|Bar Harbor at Dusk - time to go home!|
|Acadia National Park - see the little cottage on the beach?|
|Acadia, viewing the Atlantic Ocean.|
|Acadia National Park. One of the many views from the scenic highway going through the park.|
|Acadia National park.|

Today was cold in Wyoming, winter is upon us I fear. We've already had one good snow of 6", the horses are furry and our pellet stove is burning 24/7. Summer is way too short.
The Rockefeller family donated land to Teton National Park near Jackson, Wyoming. Did you know the answer?
Next blog will be the Phillips Maine narrow guage railroad.
