Hiking Again at Jordan Pond
Posted by Francesca
Do you remember yesterday’s blog when I was reading on the plane going to Maine? What was Sharkey doing? Sleeping, of course. You might wonder what I found so captivating. Well, I was boning (ha-ha) up on facts about Acadia National Forest and I discovered some interesting things about Jordan Pond. Take a look!
1 Oh my, Franny! This hike around Jordan Pond has been especially rigorous today. My feet need a cool down in this nice cold water.
2 You're right, Sharkey. This water is really soothing on my doggy pads.
3 Say, Sharkey! Did you know this pond, officially called a tarn, was formed by an ice sheet during the last glacial period? It sits between the Penobscot Mountain and the two mountains known as the Bubbles.
4 Jordan Pond covers 187 acres, with a maximum depth of 150 feet, and a shoreline of 3.6 miles. That's a nice trek! No wonder Martha likes hiking around it!
5 This is certainly very clear water and I am feeling really, really thirsty.
6 Now, that's what I call refreshing!
7 Sharkey, perhaps you and I should open a bottling plant. Pure, delicious Maine water. Or, has that been done already?
