Winter Hikes

We do what we can up here in Maine to get outside when the temperatures drop and the snow falls. Apart from skiing and snowshoeing, I have been fortunate enough to get out and do a few hikes this winter. Here’s a few photos from my winter day hikes.

The view from the top of Cadillac Mountain in Acadia National Park, less than an hour from where I grew up. Dorr Mountain and the Atlantic are in the background.
