We went to the top of Cadillac mountain first where you could see out over the whole town of Bar Harbor.

After looking all around the park we went around the other side of Mount Desert Island. This area is the more residential area of the island. We saw the Bass Harbor Lighthouse which you can get a picture of from an "easy to get to" location, but I chose to climb out on some precariously placed rocks to get a cooler looking shot of it!
Finally, we went to Schoodic point which is one of Sue's favorite spots in all of Maine. It is about an hour away from Bar Harbor, yet it is still a part of Acadia National Park. There are no throngs of tourists in this spot, though. We almost had the whole place to ourselves. It would be the perfect place to read and listen to the waves if it had not been so windy. I was so cold I had to sit in the car after a while and warm up. I would recommend going there sometime in warm, calm weather and I promise you will enjoy your day.
