About a month ago, I was lucky enough to visit beautiful Acadia National Park.  Here are a few facts about the park:

Acadia is the oldest American National Park east of the Mississippi River and the very first where the land was donated to the federal government.

There are over 1100 vascular plant species. These include deciduous hardwood forests and conifer forests, made up of spruce, hemlock, fir, and pine. Blueberry thickets are common as well, as are a wide variety of grasses and wildflowers.
