This scene is the high point of any trip to the Acadia National Park region of the Maine Coast. Photographed frequently but rarely with this quality of light, the cliffside navigation marker in Acadia National Park marks the entrance to Bass Harbor on the southwestern side of Mount Desert Island. The lighthouse was built of brick in 1858 on a stone foundation, stands 56 feet above mean high water. The building is on the National Register of Historic Places.
