(For the next couple of weeks I will be taking us back to travels and events from prior years. I’ve already had one backup drive partially fail on me so it’s time to carefully tuck away the old to make room for the new.)
Jordan Pond and the Bubbles are one of those everyone wants to see sites in Arcadia National Park in Maine and in my opinion it’s worth the traffic headache to see them. But did you know you can also hike to the top of the North and South Bubbles?
We hiked the one on the right here to the top. I was excited to be able to capture the view from Jordon Pond towards the Bubbles but nature had other plans as shown by the “view” from the top. Could not see the pond or much of anything else and I was quite cautious about venturing any further than this spot where I took the photo.
Fortunately we made it back down and to our car before the sky opened and unleashed a storm which took out some of the power to parts of downtown Bar Harbor. We tried to return to the spot the next day but there was no parking to be found anywhere near the hiking path. Oh well, I can at least say I reached the summit of the South Bubble.
