Drama of the island ground

180The shore and forest landscape on this island is different than the forest ground in my home valley up north. My parents owned land in the Fort Kent hills, and its forest floor, once a potato field, rippled up the ridge. Here on Mount Desert Island, the ground swells up with exposed rock, natural platforms for elevating the curious wanderer.
