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:
Above: A Remodelista favorite, photographer Jennifer Steen Booher of Quercus Design has been capturing images of Bar Harbor Maine for years. Here the hemlock trail is particularly stunning seen through a veil of snow flakes.

Above: OK, not a native Maine rabbit. But Jenn’s daughter’s Netherland Dwarf bunny, Shilow, captured enjoying the same storm, was so cute we had to share.
Above: The trail passes the Great Meadow and continues to the Park Loop Road.
Above: A small stream flows through a culvert under the path into the Great Meadow marsh.
Above: Doubling back across the road again, the path follows the Great Meadow Loop, which offers great views of the Cadillac and Dorr Mountains.
