I’m just home from teaching with my pal David Middleton in Maine. The guy just keeps plugging along – heart attacks and horse kicks won’t keep him from his teaching duties or his dark chocolate. It was a fun workshop, with a great group of people. One of the highlights for me of this location is wandering the beautiful carriage trails of Acadia National Park. This year the fall weather was a bit unpredictable, but when is weather anything but? We had rain and wind for a few days but nevertheless, we had some nice color on the trees, and even better color on the paths and trails. This photo was taken along the path to Duck Pond on a rainy afternoon. I’m hoping it makes you want to step into the frame and talk a walk! If you ever get the chance to head to Maine be sure to visit Acadia, it’s well worth it in any weather.
