|bubble pond - acadia national park|
Watched some ducks out on the pond, and came across one person fishing. All the little brooks that run down the mountain side and into the pond were pretty dried up, but the brook that runs from Bubble Pond on over to Eagle Lake was flowing pretty good.
One of the usual treats a visit to Bubble Pond will usually give you is the Loons coming out in the evening and coloring the air with the music only Loons can produce. But as that time of evening approached the temps began to drop by the pond so we decided to head back up the road. Of all the places in Acadia National Park, I have always found Bubble Pond to be the best place to go to watch and listen to Loons.
|BUBBLE POND CARRIAGE ROAD - ACADIA NATIONAL PARK|
Earlier we had followed the Bubble Pond carriage road nearly all the way to Jordan Pond area and didn't see a single horse and rider pass along that stretch of carriage road, though there were signs horses had passed at some point found along the roadway.
We did make an attempt at one point to follow a very rough trail at the head of the Pond. It is either the East Face or West Face trail up Cadillac Mountain, and over the years I have tried to follow it up a number of times, but it is either an abandoned trail that the trail head sign was never removed from or a very poorly marked trail. I believe I will begin calling this trail the trail that leads to nowhere.....We got so far up and decided to turn around.
All in all the poetry of the day ended up not being the language of Loons but of the sun interacting with the calm waters of the pond, and there was just enou
gh of a breeze to keep the insects at bay.
