Brief Directions: Follow Rt 3 through the town of Ellsworth to Mount Desert Island. From there you can enter the park from several different entrances.
Notes: My favorite times are around the middle of June for the lupines and the second week of October for the beautiful fall colors. Great sunrise/sunset locations include the summit of Cadillac Mountain and the rugged granite coastline. Several lakes in the park are wonderful places for the photographer to catch reflections of vivid autumn colors. If you are lucky you may have some periods of fog which can add a bit a mood or mystery to your images.
