Depending on how early you want to start, Dorr would be a good one. Most anything east of that other than Cadillac will be blocked by both Cadillac and Dorr.
    Thank you Sir!

    Returned home from a few days at Acadia. We were blessed with great weather and a long but really easy ride from NY to ME as well as the ride home. What is a 7hr ride ended up 6hr 20 min. Even hit Freeport for an early dinner at Jameson Tavern (one of my all time favorites) on the ride home.

    It was my girlfriend's first time in ME so we did Beehive to Gorham Mt summit to Park Loop Road the first day. Did Great Head loop and enjoyed some time at sand beach. Hit Seal Harbor and Cadillac Mt Trails. Drove back up to Cadillac Mt. for sunset time. Always a great view.

    I was really surprised by the large number of MA plates. From what I read I thought it was 14 day quarantine for MA. Lots of NY too. I did read NY was not on the 14 day quarantine list. It was really nice to have some really good food in Bar Harbor. Glad they had restaurants open inside and outside; whatever you're comfort level was/is. Happy to say my first Lobsta bake in over a decade came out excellent!

    The KOA campground on the ocean is excellent and very clean.

    Gorham Mountain is a good choice for a sunrise walk. Also consider Beech Mountain. You can go half way up the fire tower for a slightly better view. You'll be watching the sun rise above the eastern half of the island, but it's still a good vantage point that is lightly used by sunrise watchers.

    The photos have flipped my world upside down. It's probably far too late to emphasize Joe's advice. Dorr mountain. It's east of Cadillac and will have far less crowds.

    Any idea how to rotate them? It's not on my laptop upside down
