Maine 2021

Mount Desert Island/Acadia National Park, Maine

Saturday, October 2 through Sunday, October 17, 2021

We flew from Oklahoma City, Oklahoma to Portland, Maine via O’Hare International Airport in Chicago, Illinois. We spent two nights in Rockport, Maine, and the rest of the time at Northeast Harbor, Maine. Most days were spent hiking, mostly in Acadia National Park. We returned to Oklahoma City via O’Hare International Airport (Chicago, Illinois).

I tracked the trip with a Bad Elf GPS Pro+ GPSr (GPS receiver), using my iPhone 12 (Gaia GPS app) as a backup (along with the FlightAware and FlightRadar24 websites).

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.

Static topographic maps, based on the standard 1:24,000 USGS maps, are denoted by a "(Topo)" link. Bright pink/magenta lines represent manually-powered transportation (e.g., biking, hiking). North is up. To get a sense of scale, review the associated main map.

Original GPX tracks are unedited, except where necessary to fill in missing data. Edited tracks are noted in their descriptions.
