Granite steps leading upward at Asticou Terraces

Granite Steps at Asticou Terraces

The climb up Asticou Terraces on the way to Thuya Garden and Thuya Lodge is filled with rugged yet beautiful scenes such as these stone steps with tinges of green and evergreen red throughout. All granite used in Acadia National Park and places such as this was quarried on Mount Desert Island. Can you imagine the work that was required to mine, transport, and place these without normal roads?
