On the last day of our week in Maine, we went back to another part of the Acadia National Park. The Wonderland Trail area consists


of a wooded area and the rocky Atlantic shore.

Sunny Wildflowers

The trail takes you through a wooded area that is full of interesting trees and flat rock formations.  The trail is relatively flat without many roots.  There were many wildflowers and mushrooms to be found along the way.

But the best part of this area is the beach!   The shore of Wonderland is covered with rocks.   On most of the shoreline, the rocks are colorful and rough shaped.

Colorful!

There is an inlet where the forces of nature roll and polish the rocks so they all are round & smooth!

Smooth Round Rock Beach!

Walking on those rounded rocks were tricky but I had to get into and down on them to get these images.  It is just incredible how the rocks have been worn down so much!

Water Action!

There are also areas where there are large rock formations with small plants managing to live in this difficult environment.

Although there were wild rose bushes in many places in Maine, most had finished blooming and they were covered with Rose Hips.  At Wonderland, the roses were still blooming!

Check out this interesting area & trail for a good example of coastal Maine.  For more info on Wonderland Trail Acadia National Park check out the website.

Please visit my gallery for these images and more.

That is all for now!
