Yesterday was a nice, softly-lit day. We drove around Acadia National Park a bit, and took the Jessup Trail. At the second stream crossing, we turned left, off the trail, following a herd of white-tailed deer into the Great Meadow, a heath under Dorr Mountain. This is one of my favorite spots in May. The combination of bright pink Rhodora and green Tamarack (Larch) trees is so beautiful, I never want to skip it. The deer were an added bonus - little ears sticking up out of the heath, visible but too small to photograph. Later, when we got home, we did a tick check - so far so good!
