Hurricane Bill - Acadia National Park - Bar Harbor Maine - Photos. 

Thunder Hole & Sand Beach drew the biggest crowds - exclusive photos are here.

On Sunday, August 23, 2009 Acadia National Park drew approximately 10,000 of people anticipating the spectacular show of mother nature.  Spectators witnessed the incredible power of the ocean when waves reached up to 20 feet high at around noon time as high tide approached.  The gigantic waves cast their force with spray and splash reaching in excess of 100 feet.   The most prominent displays were seen at  Sand Beach and  particularly Thunder Hole.  See pictures of Hurricane Bill at Acadia National Park in Bar Harbor, Maine  below.  (Use of the photos are available with written permission by emailing to:  contact@downeastmaineonline.com)

Just passed the Thunder Hole at Acadia National Park, Hurricane Bill crashes into the coastline of the Park approaching the Otter Cliffs area.


Here you can see spectators actually on top of the granite ledge (dangerous)


At Sand Beach...just minutes later, Park Rangers cleared the beach of spectators before the sea swept across the entire beach.
