September Sunsets

September in Acadia....It's such a beautiful and peaceful time of year in the National Park. (September Sunsets are spectacular!...Thank you artist, Gail Ribas for sharing your talent)

I just discovered some statistics about the FREE bus service on Mt.Desert Island...
Since 1999, propane-powered Island Explorer buses have carried more than two million passengers in Acadia National Park, eliminating more than 685,000 automobile trips and preventing 6,444 tons of greenhouse gases. The fare-free buses are supported by Park entrance fees.

These vehicles offer Mount Desert Island visitors and residents free transportation to hiking trails, carriage roads, island beaches, and in-town shops and restaurants.

What a nice bonus for locals traveling to and from work...and for tourists visiting the Bar Harbor area.
Here's a link to help 'plan your visit'....

Let me know if you need a place to stay. We enjoy sharing our Island and pampering our paying house guests at our Acadia Pines Chalets. ...Realtor GramEpat
