    We recently traveled to Bar Harbor, Acadia National Park, and Baxter State Park in the state of Maine. On the way home, we stopped in Montreal, Quebec.

    Things did not go according to plan in Maine. Foggy weather for 3 days cancelled our plans for whale watching in Bar Harbor, and despite staking out prime moose spots in Baxter State Park, we failed to see any moose, let alone the bull moose I was hoping to capture.

    We made the best of our trip, though, and I still was able to capture a few good photos.

    This was from the hike around Jordan Pond in Acadia National Park:

    Sunrise from Cadillac Mountain in Acadia. This is the first place the sunrise can be seen each morning in the United States. We got there at about 4:20am (sunrise was a little after 5am), and there were already several hundred people camped out for the sunrise. When we left, the parking lot was overflowing.

    Not a great photo, but I am a huge Montreal Canadiens hockey fan, and we stayed about a block from the Bell Centre, where the Habs play.
