Lucky for me my husband, although a city boy, spent part of his youth in northern Ontario, exploring with his own set of Polish Scouts. Hiking, biking, canoeing...
And now we live in one of the most beautiful places in the US. Acadia is the second most visited National Park, right behind Yosemite.
Then we met Kyla, who met Dave and they love, love, love to hike. And they are adventurous! Dave is from Colorado and is no stranger to mountains and the outdoors. Kyla has hiked everywhere - even Mt Washington and she does it with such grace.
The Jordan Cliff Trail - although just above the Pond House involved metal rungs that you used to climb the sheer areas and some cliff hugging but overall it was a steady up and up and up.
Starting to look sweaty! Almost there!
We ended up doing two mountains because three hours just didn't seem long enough (at the time) and we worked up an appetite for a delicious lunch in Bar Harbor.
