Is it possible for Mount Desert Island to be more beautiful? Why, YES, it is!  Fall is when Mother Nature dips into her color pallet and paints the island in exquisite colors that must be seen to believe. Each and every day is like walking into a painting that you not only see, but can smell, hear, feel, and touch.
