Acadia National Park

The Acadia National Park is located on the northeastern coast of the USA in the state of Maine. The landscape is geologically still very young. About 15,000 years ago, glaciers covered the area that today is divided between Mount Desert Island, the Isle au Haut and the Schoodic Peninsula as well as many small archipelagos. From an extensive system of lakes and wetlands rises Cadillac Mountain, the first point in the USA where you can admire the sunrise. Sandy beaches are rare in Acadia, the coastline looks fjord-like like at Somes Sound.
