View of Mount Desert Island

The 40-minute drive to Ellsworth (the closest town with a stoplight) takes us along U.S. Route 1. There is a stretch in Sullivan where you can see Mount Desert Island across Frenchman’s Bay. It’s the money shot that never fails to capture my attention as I drive by. Click on the image for a larger view.?

  1. I just love that area and have to get back up there. We stayed in a campground on the Somes Sound, so a nice place to stay on the sound and lots to do in the area. Loved riding the trails too.

    Love your website and blog. Thank you for the free downloads of patterns. I plan on making some this winter. My husband Bill and I have a small acreage where we raise organic asparagus. We are in the process of enlarging our crop. I also grow herbs.
    we live in the beautiful Wisconsin River Valley, not far from our state capitol, Madison.
    I found your site while looking for coop plans, love yours.
    Will be getting a few hens next Spring. Pam
