Ascent Trip Report

Hiked the Beehive on a foggy day in Acadia. After seeing sunshine on the peak from Sand Beach, I thought it would be clear by the time I got up there. The summit was fogged in and the view was blocked in most directions, except for a slight view toward Champlain and Dorr Mountains. The rungs were pretty fun, but I'm still disappointed about no ocean views. Visited the Bowl on the way down; nice views from there.
