Lots of parts of the community of Bar Harbor come together to make the Night Sky Festival happen. The classic Criterion Theater was the site of a fantastic performance by Galileo's Daughters, with readings by Dava Sobol (author of The Glass Universe).
|Ready to board for an evening of story-telling (by a local Native American professor) and star-gazing (a refresher in all the constellations, which I regularly learn and forget).|
|The sun was setting as we pulled out of the harbor.|
|Trees were just beginning to show color, and being fresh from the West, we enjoyed every hint of it.|
|The horses were beautiful. We did have to occasionally dodge evidence of their passage while biking.|
|Cadillac Mountains offers expansive views over the whole region. The Maine coast is an endless series of fjords and islands left behind when the glaciers passed through.|
|Yes, it was that much of a cliff. As advertised.|
|It did occur to me to wonder how many years those rails had been there, rusting away...|
|Walking off the edge of the world.|
|And down into the forest, with the hints of fall color tantalizing us at every vista!|
