Bar Harbor, Maine

Emerging from the ocean waves every 12 hours or so, Bar Harbor’s eponymous sandbar provides a link from the town to nearby Bar Island.  Most people traverse the bar staying to the center where the constant foot and vehicle traffic leaves overpowering signs of human activity.  Stray a little further from that path, however, and you can see the result of nature’s sculpting tools at work as waves carve mirror images of themselves into the sand.
