Maine Acadia National Park Landscape Photography
Photograph - Photography
Jordan Pond is at the heart of Acadia National Park on Mount Desert Island and a prime location for Maine Acadia National Park photography. Jordan Pond and the South and North Bubbles in the background are iconic photo subjects of the park. Anyone that has ever visited the area will recognize this image fondly and with a desire to return. Since the 1800's, people have come here for popovers and this view.
Jordan Pond is an oligotrophic tarn in Acadia National Park near the town of Bar Harbor, Maine. It covers 187 acres (76 ha), with a maximum depth of 150 feet (46 m) and a shoreline of 3.6 miles (5.8 km). The pond was formed by the Wisconsin Ice Sheet during the last glacial period. It is flanked on the west by Penobscot Mountain and to the northeast by the two mountains known as the Bubbles. The southern end, and outflow, are limited by the natural Jordan Pond moraine, which has been supplemented by a small dam.
The pond has clear water, with visibility normally 46 feet (14 m) and occasions of up to 60 feet (18 m) recorded, the deepest in Maine. It serves as the water supply for the village of Seal Harbor. It does not experience dissolved oxygen depletion in the lake depths.
