Cathedrals of Evergreen

Greg A. Hartford, photographer, author, publisherWhen I was a young boy, my parents would often stay at some campgrounds when visiting Acadia National Park. With seven children all in a station wagon, this was definitely the way to go to save some money. But the truth was, there was much more we ended up sharing as a family in a place like this than most any other. For many years, I did not realize that many people have never experienced what it is like to spend a night on the floor of a forest with the sounds of nature all around. Or, to collect some firewood so you can cook your breakfast over an open fire. I love the smell of a campfire combined with the delicious scent of balsam fir. What I would give to be back there again as a young man, walking through the winding dirt roads next to the coast, looking up at the cathedral canopy of trees. But the truth is, every time I am there, the young boy visits me again, and blends all the years into one moment of time.
