The world is mud-luscious and puddle-wonderful

From early Spring to late Fall many hikers and cyclists tend to congregate at the Duck Brook Bridge in Acadia National Park. It is a fascinating place to meet visitors. I had the occasion to meet a two travelers who had ridden their bicycles from the Los Angles area to Acadia National Park. Their trip turned out to be interesting, if not daring, as they wheeled and camped the entire trip. A small crowd of ten or so gathered around as the cyclists who answered questions as they told stories about their adventures. Text and photos by Joe Palmer
