Cadillac Mountain

17 July 2011
As we traveled to our destination today we were rewarded with amazing views of Mount Cadillac. At 1,532 feet, Cadillac Mountain is the highest point along the North Atlantic seaboard and is the first place to view the sunrise in the United States from October 7 through March 6. It is one of over 20 mountains on Mount Dessert Island that were pushed up by earth's tectonic and volcanic forces millions of years ago. Were it not for the huge glaciers that sheared off their tops, they would be even higher than what we see today. The mountain is largely composed of pink granite with forests of spruce and pitch pine. It was named in honor of the French explorer and adventurer, Antoine Laumet de La Mothe, sieur de Cadillac. This gentleman went on to found Detroit and the Cadillac automobile is named after him!
