During our road trip, we had planned to make Mt. Katahdin our last big mountain stop. However, we were denied at the gate due to our vehicle's size restrictions. To make the most of the situation, we decided to head to the coast to catch a view of Cadillac Mountain and explore Acadia's Schoodic Peninsula in Winter Harbor. (Read about our Katahdin stop here.)
The trail was about 5 miles total into the pines along the Schoodic peninsula. As we hiked, we could hear the deep, gutteral grumblings of the lobster boat engines just off the coast, and smell the salt in the air ~ one of the best things about Maine (you never really smell salt water until you come to the north east). This painting captures the quintessential Maine coast moments we experienced.
"View from Schoodic Head, Acadia National Park" is an oil on panel painting that has been sold, but you can buy a print reproduction of the original painting here.
