Lots of driving....

Boy am I tired! We were up at 3am this morning. We made the long drive to Grafton Notch and arrived before sunrise. We photographed a couple of beautiful waterfalls, but unfortunately, the skies were not too exciting. The foliage in the park was fantastic, but there wasn't much color near the falls. After sunrise, we drove North and East to take a look at some of the countryside before making our way to Bangor to check into our hotel. We did another quick weather check, and then drove North to Baxter State Park. The park is truly beautiful, and we did take a couple of shots. Unfortunately, the weather hasn't been too cooperative this weekend so far. We have our eye on a front that is moving South towards the coast, so we'll be heading to Acadia National Park tomorrow. I have my fingers crossed. We're back in Bangor, now - we spent 5 or 6 hours driving today.

I can't complain about the weather, really. I like to know exactly where to go when the right weather hits, and a first trip is never ideal. We always do as much exploring as possible during our first stay at any location. Then, when the skies are right, we know exactly where to go. We have found some really nice locations in this beautiful state, and we'll do more scouting tomorrow. If we get a few nice shots along the way, we'll consider ourselves lucky.
