This panoramic photo of an Acadia sunrise was taken from Thompson
Island Picnic Area
just before the sun broke across the horizon. Thompson
, located in Trenton, Maine
is the small island between the mainland of Maine and Mount
and is where most people first enter Acadia
. This is a popular location to eat Maine Lobster and steamed clams purchased in Trenton
before continuuing onto the much larger Mount Desert Island. Generations of people visiting the area have
started their days here.
Mount Desert Island
has over 20 mountains,
all of which were sheared off by glaciers thousands of years ago. Cadillac
, at 1,530 feet, is the highest and best known mountain on the island. This region is known for
its rugged rocky coastline.
