Covert Winter Tourism

Our mellow Thanksgiving consisted of a nice hike down a snowed-in road to explore the Pretty Marsh area on the Western side of Mount Desert Island. Afterwards, a stop at one of the popular (now deserted) tourist-traps - the iconic Bass Harbor Lighthouse. This diptych is after clambering down the rocks to stand in one spot, first turning left, and then to the right, to catch the sunset on the cliffside. It was inspirational and motivational to review the "Down East" portfolio of images after an extended hiatus, then lace up the hiking boots and break out the trail map again. Good to be back in this neck of the woods.


  1. Nice pics- especially the lighthouse with the rocks

  2. Thanks - it's been fun returning and re-exploring during the comparatively sane season: peaceful, quiet... no leaves + no crowds... a reminder why millions of people visit here.
