After a great week in Vermont, we headed to Acadia National Park in Maine to see if we could catch some fall colors and coastal scenery before I had to fly back to Denver for work. Acadia turned out to be a completely mixed bag – stunningly beautiful and overwhelmingly busy. After a few days of not feeling the touristy/overwhelmed with photographers scene, we headed back to Vermont and all of the beautiful leaves we had left a few days earlier were on the ground, blown off the trees by a storm.

To add a final last little bit of crazy to a trip that started in the Canadian Rockies with a forty mile backpacking trip, we took a gamble on a somewhat overcast forecast and an extra five hours of driving to get to Ricketts Glen in Pennsylvania. It completely paid off with one last perfect day of photographing waterfalls, streams, and fall colors.
