Acadia: day 3

On Monday morning, we packed up camp and headed to Acadia National Park on Mount Desert Island. Phoebe fell asleep in the car, so we dropped Scott and Bruce off at a trail head and they hiked up Dorr Mountain...
 ...which required hanging onto chains and climbing up ladders...
...but it appears to be worth the climb. Gorgeous. They descended and met us at a nature center. When Phoebe woke up, we occupied ourselves by checking out animal exhibits in the nature center and finding frogs by the trails outside. We spent the afternoon swimming and building sand castles at Echo Lake. I think I left the camera in the car, so you will have to imagine tall pine-covered cliffs and a pristine (and cold, in my opinion) lake wedged in the middle. That night we set up at Seawall Campground and, as with every night on this trip, the kids asked to be put to bed.
