    Acadia is one of my favorite places, and I’ve been looking forward to this book for months. Can’t wait to see the Monkmans’ view of this beautiful region!

    One of my favorite childhood memories is picnicking and picking wild blueberries amongst the rocks on top of Cadillac Mountain. Acadia is one of my favorite places on earth.

    Haven’t been there in 10 yrs. This gives me a reason to return. To Jerry and Marcy. Wonderful photos indeed.

    Of course you do know that Lubec, Corea, Great Cranberry Isle, Thompson Island, etc. are NOT in Acadia National Park…!

    I was disappointed that the Bass Harbor Lighthouse was not included in this article relating the best places to photograph in Acadia National Park.
