Route: Day Mountain Trail, carriage road

Acadia picked up a good 3" of snow Thursday night and Friday day, resulting in early winter conditions. Day Mountain was bootable, especially when bypassing any tricky parts of the southern side via the carriage road. Nice directional views at and near the summit.
