Annual Memorial Day ride to Bar Harbor, Maine - on Mount Desert Island.
The Eastern half of Mount Desert is Acadia National Park. While its the second smallest National Park, its also had the honor of being the second most visited.
Much of the Park is the famous: "Park Loop Road". The road is often one-way - making things easier. You just roll along the rocky coast, up and down hills, winding through twisties, inhaling spruce, cedar, and pine -- mixed with the refreshing oceanic air.
You roll by beaches all made of rounded stones, over wooden breaches, beneath stone-cut arches, by babbling brooks, past fishing ponds, below geological oddities -- in a state of motorcycle nirvana..
Bar Harbor is the town we're staying in. Its got a great downtown with antiquated, New England style shops, restaurants, bars, ice cream, sundries (what's a sundry?) and novelties.
We're staying at two hotels and riding different times. A handful are going up Friday, May 2
2nd. Others (Kristin and I) are going Saturday the 23rd - meeting at the Union Bluff hotel in York for breakfast. The traditional hotel is the Quality Inn - with a heated pool and jacuzzi. Its a great, no nonsense location and about $90-100/night. Others (Kristin & I inclusive) have opted to go for the Regency Resort on the waterfront in down town Bar Harbor - for $20-$30 more per night. We may never again get the chance - who knows.|
