We wereÂ told that a great place to see sunsets was Bass Harbor Lighthouse. Our campsite was a short distanceÂ away, so we went there a few times during our stay. It was a challenge getting there on time, the sun set a few minutes after 7:00 while we were in Maine.Â We wanted to get there earlier so we could see the sun setting.
We were disappointed the first time there because the lighthouse was behind us and there was only a short sidewalk to watch the sun setting. Â The parking lot was crowded and the sidewalk lined with people watching the sun set.Â We wondered what was so special about the place.
The last time we went there, I was talking to a family who mentioned there was another path on the other side of the light house. Â We knew we would miss the sun officially setting, but we ran around and discovered what we missed! There was a path that lead to a bunch of rocks that you could climb out on. Â Depending where you stopped, you could get some wonderful pictures!
