Sunrise on Cadillac Mountain

A highlight from my trip to Maine this summer was sharing a sunrise with number 2 son and daughter on Cadillac Mountain in Acadia National Park…

It’s a 4:30 wake up call but well worth it!  The short drive up the mountain was bumper to bumper as this is a popular activity for tourists as well as locals.

The wind was whipping and I was glad that I had packed a coat as we chose our spot for awaiting the spectacle.  We had about twenty minutes before the sun began to peak over the horizon…

Once you get a glimpse, the rest of the show goes quickly…

In almost the blink of an eye the sun is up and rising…

It was a great start to a great day and a memory I’ll cherish forever!

Maggie approved…

I hope the sun is shining on you…
