This is a small piece on a wayside exhibit for the National Park Service. Imagine a photo of the area on a large panel, then on the upper right, an infographic that explains how it was created. A glacier moves in, creates a moraine (that pile of rocks) that helps hold back the water, which becomes a really cool pond. We actually visited Jordan Pond 3 years ago, so it was a highlight to get this assignment. In June our daughter jumped into this pond…absolutely freezing. She wins. I wanted to jump into it (and I LOVE cold water) but it was about 40°. Nope. I absolutely encourage everyone to visit Acadia National Park in Maine. If you can, hit Jordan Pond at lunchtime, great restaurant. The hikes around this area (on the old carriage trails) are memorable.
