National Geographic : 1966 Jul
Sun-chasing ketch heels in the Atlantic off Acadia National Park, Maine. Bundled against cool July breezes, vacationers on Cadillac Mountain hear a ranger recount tales of a region rich in sea lore; beneath them spreads the famed resort of Bar Harbor. Islands hopscotch across Frenchman Bay to Schoodic Peninsula, where storm waves lash the rocks (below). Private donations created Acadia in 1919, first national park on the east coast. 41 EKTACHROME(UPPER LEFT) BY CHRISTOPHERG. KNIGHT;KODACHROMESBY ROBERTE. GILKA, NATIONALGEOGRAPHICSTAFF © N.G .S.
