With a Northeaster impacting New England it was the ideal time to visit Thunder Hole in Acadia National Park on Wednesday, October 27th!

Thunder Hole lived up to it's name with thunderous booms and large waves crashing over the observatory landing and rocks. Despite the fact that the Park Rangers had locked the gates, there were individuals who climbed over to get closer to the booming waves.

We certainly don't recommend doing that, as unfortunately we remember when Hurricane Bill in August 2009 washed 3 into the water, tragically killing a 7 year old and injuring 13 others.

Check out the photos from the afternoon. The photos were taken around 3:30 with high tide scheduled for 3:44 p.m.
