2005 New England

We took this trip in the fall of 2005, hoping to see the autumn foliage. Somewhat unfortunate for us, the foliage came later this year and we were ahead of the peak. Nevertheless, we saw spectacular scenery along the way.

A quintessential New England scene — a covered bridge in Woodstock, Vermont:

And Moose Lake in Maine was the northernmost point we reached on this trip:

But the highlight of the trip was undoubtedly at Acadia National Park:

And watching sunset from the Cadillac Mountain was the single-most memorable moment of the trip (technically, we were not “watching” sunset as we were facing east, however, it was surreal to see the islands disappear in the coastal fog and twilight):

Finally, we made our last stop at Concord, Massachusetts:


And, of course, Thoreau’s Walden Pond:
