Martha Stewart Living
When I purchased my home in Maine more than a decade ago, I was already an avid hiker. I had trekked in northern India; I had climbed Kilimanjaro, in Africa; and I had hiked in Colorado, Northern California, Utah, Europe, and elsewhere. Because I enjoy nature, with its plants, rock formations, and beautiful vistas, I immediately fell in love with Acadia National Park on Mount Desert Island and the fine network of hiking trails that traverse the preserve. They crisscross rocky cliffs, gentle meadows, sandy and rocky beaches, and dense evergreen forests.
