Hike of the Week: A Winter Wonderland in Maine

Justine Hand December 23, 2013

Photographer and Bar Harbor native Jennifer Steen Booher recently captured one of Acadia National Park’s popular landscapes as most summer tourists seldom see it: in the glory of a winter storm. At a modest two miles, Jesup Path loop is the perfect walk for a snowy winter day, when other Maine trails might be impassible:
