Winter Hikes

We do what we can up here in Maine to get outside when the temperatures drop and the snow falls. Apart from skiing and snowshoeing, I have been fortunate enough to get out and do a few hikes this winter. Here’s a few photos from my winter day hikes.

Thanksgiving Day hike up Great Pond Mountain in East Orland, ME. Only 10 minutes from home.

The view from the top of Cadillac Mountain in Acadia National Park, less than an hour from where I grew up. Dorr Mountain and the Atlantic are in the background.

Back down in Portland, I took a nice, snowy hike around Mackworth Island in Falmouth. Great Diamond Island is in the distance.
