TRIPOD ARMY: I do not do this on a regular basis, but I would bet that this is a familiar sight for people who frequently find themselves at the top of Cadillac Mountain in Acadia National Park when the sun sets between mid-May and mid-October. I estimate there were close to 100 people tonight who pulled into the Blue Hill Overlook near the summit to take in the view to the west. The view is terrific but (in my opinion) the sunset was not spectacular.
Scenes from the 2012 Clean Water, Clean Shores trash collecting effort on Placentia Island (off Mount Desert Island), Maine, on Saturday, Sept. 8, 2012.
The Prospect Harbor fisherman, outside the former Stinson Seafood sardine cannery, re-imagined with the likeness of Live Lobster President Antonio Bussone. Live Lobster bought the plant in 2011, but it has been idle since March 2012 (along with all other Live Lobster distribution facilities) because of a dispute between the company and TD Bank. For the latest on the company’s recent troubled history in Maine, read this story.
Photos from the first day (Sat., July 14, 2012) of the 10th annual Bio Blitz in Acadia National Park. The pictures were taken at Witch Hole Pond. People in the photos include David Manski, head of Acadia’s resource management division, Stephanie Kyriazis, an education ranger with the park (with the dragonfly on her sleeve), and volunteers Audyn Curless and Sophia Krevans of the Acadia Youth Technology Team. The adolescent frog, which still has its tadpole tail, is an amphibian and so was not targeted during the collection effort, which focused on aquatic insects.
Photos from the scene of a marine excavation Saturday, July 14, 2012, at the site of a shipwreck on Mount Desert Island, Maine. The last photo, with the Moxie can, is a dead giveaway that the project is somewhere in the Pine Tree State (unofficially known as the Moxie State).
