ACADIA NATIONAL PARK, Maine — Like a group of yogis who have found the ideal place to meditate, more than two dozen carefully balanced rocks populate a quiet cove just north of Otter Cliffs. They appear to have emerged from the round rock beach to take their place amongst the jagged cliffs on a quest to find serenity.

They appear to be oblivious to the weather, but chances are many will vanish as soon as the next storm hits at high tide. Until then, they’d probably welcome company.

The cove is located just off the Park Loop Road, at the junction with the Otter Cliffs Road.
