Acadia National Park, Maine

Known in geological terms as “joints” these cracks in the rock are the result of prehistoric volcanic activity fracturing the bedrock.  Time and erosion have carved these cracks deeply into the rock providing a tenuous home for various plant life.  What little soil that is able to withstand the frequent, regular runoff of water, accumulates in these cracks providing a foothold for wild blueberry plants.  Ever-present lichens, which thrive on the damp coastal environment, provide a multicolor blanket covering the pink granite rocks, contributing to the multitude of stunning colors that are an integral characteristic of Acadia’s enduring appeal.
