Hike to Sunsweep Sculpture

June 18, 2016

After we finished our tour of Roosevelt's summer home, we drove over a beautiful carriage road to the other side of the island and enjoyed the view of the Wolves - a string of little islands. Then we went on a beautiful hike to the Sunsweep Sculpture. This is listed as the most difficult hike in the park but only because you have to watch your feet as you step over roots and walk on a narrow walkway over spongy moss. 


This eagle was sitting on a tiny rocky island just off Campobello Island

These iris are a different species then we have at the refuge - ours have yellow in them

A lot of it looked like this

I love these tiny dogwoods

The carriage roads travel through a tree tunnel

This is the third of the three blogs it took to tell you about my day of June 18th. But even the morning's work was play ..... and I ate a LOT of Maine's famous red hotdogs while helping with the Fishing Derby.
