Quoddy Head State Park Hike – Wednesday – June 26, 2013
WARNING - PHOTO INTENSIVE!!!!
Yesterday, we crossed the bridge to Campobello Island into Canada
to see the East Quoddy (Head Harbor) and Mulholland Lighthouses.
Today, we only had a 5-mile trip from our campground (A) to Quoddy Head State Park (B).
Arriving early, we avoided any crowds:o))
So we will come back later to look inside.
Right now we want to hit the hiking trails!!
Just before the beginning of the Coastal Trail there is a set of steps to the beach.
Of course, we needed to take a quick look around;o))
Back up the steps and here we go…
off along the coastal trail.
This is by far one of the most beautiful and amazing hikes we have ever taken.
I will let the pictures do the talking!!!
(Click on any photo to enlarge it.)
We hiked level ground…
We hiked up hill…
We hiked down hill…
We hiked by streams…
We passed by High Ledge…
Of course, most of the ledges were high!!!
Green Point is about halfway along the Coastal Trail.
It was just as beautiful all the way to the end of the Coastal Trail at Carrying Place Cove!!
We reached Carrying Place Cove which is the halfway point of our hike.
After spending some time enjoying this beautiful cove,
it was time to take the Thompson Trail back through the woods towards the Bog Trail.
We really enjoyed the wildflowers and ferns along this trail:o))
Wish there was a way to attach the smell of the beautiful evergreens!!!
The last part of our hike was the Bog Walk.
We spent quite a bit of time walking the bog boardwalk
The perfect way to spend the day!!!
