Where the land meets the sea: the view from inside Acadia National Park.

Before we ever report on a place, we scout it to make sure it has the kind of stories and characters that could fill an entire magazine issue. We've been wanting to produce an "episode," so to speak, on Maine's Penobscot Bay for about two years—ironically, it's the first place we ever scouted after our inaugural trip to Marfa, Texas.

Little did we know that it wouldn't be Issue 2 (we'd have to wait until 2017, and it would actually be Issue 5.) But now that our production trip has wrapped, we decided to reminisce with some of the images creative director Jesse Lenz made during our first ever trip to this incredible part of the United States. Enjoy.
