|Halfway up the Beehive looking down at Sand Beach.|
After visiting Acadia four years ago with my family, instead of driving to the summit of Cadillac Mountain, I wanted to get up there on my own two feet. We accomplished that goal on the first day of the trip. Next on my list? Climbing the Beehive again.
One of my favorite parts about my first trip to Acadia was the opportunity explore the park's trails with my mother and brother; experiencing the outdoors in Maine as a family was incredibly special. But my trip up the Beehive with my brother stands out in my memory not only because it was a gorgeous hike, but also because it was one of the most terrifying trails I've done. And I couldn't wait to share the same experience with friends.
