Carriage ride in Acadia National Park
These are all from the carriage ride we took in the park. Acadia has over 46 miles of carriage roads built by John Rockefeller over a period of 40 years. He had the road built to preserve the park. The only mode of transportation on the roads are by carriage, bike or by foot. We took the tour of the bridges in the park. The girls had a great time. We learned a lot about the park from our driver. We were pulled by two Belgian horses. We were lucky enough to get on the first tour of the new summer season.
"It liberates the vandal to travel - you never saw a bigoted, opinionated, stubborn, narrow-minded, self-conceited, almighty mean man in your life but he had stuck in one place since he was born" MARK TWAIN, 1868 With or without religion, you would have good people doing good things and evil people doing evil things. But for good people to do evil things, that takes religion. Steven Weinberg
Just call me the D-Town Hero!
I was born and raised in the small town of DeSoto, Mo just about 45 south of St. Louis. I now live in the big city and teach in a school district in northern Jefferson County. I have a great family that supports all my endeavors. My passion for the last 4 years has been bicycle racing. I have always been into cycling, but have taken it to another level over the past few years.
I enjoy watching bicycle racing on tv along with Cardinal Baseball and high school and college basketball. While it is not my passion, I also officiate high school and college basketball. It pays the bills in the winter!
Travel has made me the person I am today. If more people got out and saw the world it would be a much better place. Read the quote by Twain on the front of my blog. Couldn't be more true!
