“A lot of people think the park is closed, but it’s not.”

Acadia is the only National Park in New England, and it is celebrating its 100th anniversary this year.  During the summer, it’s so crowded ( estimated 2.8 million visitors) that I stay away, confining my enjoyment of the Park’s hiking and biking trails to the fall, and the winter.

Check out Aislinn Sarnacki’s excellent article on winter use of the park.  It’s in today’s Bangor Daily News and right here, via this link:  How to enjoy snowy trails, frozen lakes in Acadia National Park — Outdoors — BDN Maine

Uncle Tom’s Guided Adventures is heading up to Blackwoods Campground  for three nights of winter camping this month. I am not sure how much snow will be around by then, but we’ll adapt to either cross country skiing, snowshoeing, or fat tire biking. We’ll have the benefit of my heated tent.   It’s going to happen!

As a bonus post, here’s Day 1 (of 3) of my last winter camping trip at Blackwoods, from 2009.
