Acadia National Park 2: Cadillac Mountain Sun Views

Ever wonder where you can view the first sunrise in the United States? Well, one location is right here in Acadia National Park!

Our plan is to wake up tomorrow around 4:00 am, so we can get to the top of Cadillac Mountain and watch the sun first break across the shores of the United States

Tonight, we’re enjoying the sunset from the mountain’s top.

Since we’re waking up extremely early for the sunrise tomorrow,

we want to scope out the area so we know where to go.

Arriving to the top, we take a look around and find the location we will come tomorrow.

Here Comes The Sun

Waking up early is a little difficult, but we feel it will be well worth it.

Even as we’re on our way to the top, we can see the sun’s light begin to reflect off the clouds.

We push on a little faster to get to the top of Cadillac Mountain before the sun officially rises.

As we approach the top, the sun turns the clouds a beautiful pink before making it’s appearance.

As hard as the sun fights, it’s not long before it slips back behind the clouds.

While it isn’t the brightest, most beautiful, sunrise we’ve seen, it’s surely memorible.
