Maine 2017

Mount Desert Island/Acadia National Park, Maine

Thursday, October 5 through Saturday, October 14, 2017

We flew from Oklahoma City, Oklahoma to Portland, Maine via Dulles International Airport in Virginia, near Washington DC. We spent the next eight days hiking or biking on Mount Desert Island, including at Acadia National Park. We returned to Oklahoma City by the reverse route.

I tracked the trip with a Bad Elf GPS Pro+ GPSr (GPS receiver), using my iPhone 8 (Gaia app) as a backup (along with the FlightAware and FlightRadar24 websites). There were a few problems:

NOTE: the downloadable GPX tracks are the full GPX files, while those shown on the provided "view map" links are simplified (with minimal effect on geographic accuracy) for much faster viewing.

Topographic maps are denoted by a "(Topo)" link. Bright pink/magenta lines represent manually-powered transportation (e.g., biking, hiking).

Original GPX tracks are unedited, except the flight from Washington DC to Oklahoma City OK.
