It's funny to be starting a blog on the last day that the information center will be open for this season. It's fitting, in a way though, because through this blog we can keep everyone posted on the happenings over here on the Quietside of Acadia National Park and Mount Desert Island. Even though we won't be keeping regular hours, we WILL be monitoring phone messages and emails, so keep those questions coming. We hope to add some photos now and then to keep everyone up-to-date with the season changes and interesting sights.

To the left is a picture I took earlier this summer at Charlotte Rhoades Park's Butterfly Garden in Southwest Harbor. It may be covered in snow by the end of this weekend if today's forecast is to be believed.
