Jordon Pond in Acadia National Park


untitled-

Located near Bar Harbor, Maine, Jordan Pond is a glacier formed tarn with a maximum water depth of 150 feet. The water is exceptionally clear with an average visibility depth of 46 feet (14 m) but this has been measured as high as 60 feet (18 m), the most ever recorded in the State of Maine. If you go, you can grab a snack at the nearby Jordon Pond House. For those who have never visited the area, Acadia National Park is a stunning national treasure on the coast of Maine.

The Everglades National Park in Florida covers over 1,500,000 acres. This amazing ecosystem provides quite the photographic challenge and opportunity. Typically, the winter months are the most sane time to visit, due to the heat and thirsty mosquitos.

America’s Most Inaccessible National Park


If you think you have come to the end of the southernmost tip of the United States once you have reached Key West, think again. Seventy miles west out over the emerald waters of The Gulf of Mexico you will find The Dry Tortugas National Park. Fort Jefferson is the largest 19th Century coastal fort and is its central feature. Take a two hour plus boat ride from Key West or consider a sea plane. This is a unique adventure not to be easily forgotten.
