We finally made it to the top of Cadillac Mountain...

This past weekend we took a trip up north a bit to Mount Desert. Now Mount Desert is recently famous for it's newest famous resident, the she devil herself, Martha Stewart. For those who "know" me, you know I Love Me Some Martha Stewart! That is why she is my devil. She makes me spend money & gets me in trouble with my man, but I digress...

Mount Desert is also famous for a beautiful place called Bar Harbor. Say it with me now "We paaked the caa in Baa Haa Baa"  No r's spoken here. True story. Northeasterner's really speak this way. Some more than others. I've been to Bar Harbor several times but have never made it to the top of Cadillac Mountain. Once due to snow. They have to shut the road down since it gets dangerous with too much snow and ice. But we made it this weekend- even though the weather wasn't in our favor as you will see. Here are a few pics...

This won't be my last visit. Apparently if you arrive here while the world is sleeping, you will be the first person in America to see the sun come up. Now doesn't that sound like a freak photographer's dream? Sign me up.

Even though the weather was in question I still love my photos. In that one it looks like you could reach up and touch the storm cloud.

If you are wondering about Martha, No I didn't see her. Yes, if I had known where her house was I would have stalked her. Yes, I told my kids to look out for her & scream if they saw her. Bad idea for an 8yr old. He yelled everytime he saw a blonde! "There she is momma!" "No son, that is not Martha". Repeat, over and over and over.

Have a great day,
