First Light at Cadillac Mountain, Acadia National Park, 1,000 Piece Jigsaw Puzzle


Cadillac Mountain is the centerpiece of Mount Desert Island in Maine and the heart of Acadia National Park. At 1,530 feet above sea level, Cadillac Mountain is the highest point along the North Atlantic seaboard and offers dramatic panoramas in every direction. Mount Desert Island is notable as the second largest island on America’s eastern seaboard (Long Island, New York is larger) and as the home of Acadia National Park. The commercial center of the island is the town of Bar Harbor on Frenchman’s Bay.

To make the image featured in the First Light jigsaw puzzle, photographer Paul Rezendes positioned his camera at the top of Cadillac Mountain and directed the lens toward the Porcupine Islands in Frenchman’s Bay and located just to the east of Bar Harbor. The dramatic sweep of the picture ranges from the granite stone of the mountain and on to the fog-bound islands in the bay below. The beautiful pink color of the stone is enhanced by the light of the sun rising beyond the Atlantic Ocean behind the photographer.

Lizard Head Summit Jigsaw Puzzle by Howard Fogg


The Lizard Head jigsaw puzzle pictures the San Miguel Mountains serving as a magnificent backdrop for Rio Grande Southern 461, a Denver and Rio Grande Western hand-me-down, as it pulls past the depot at the summit of Lizard Head Pass, about 20 miles southwest of Telluride, Colorado. D&RGW 463, which was on a short-term lease, has assisted the train to the top of the hill, and shortly it will be on its way, running light to the division point at Rico,  Colorado, with 461 and its train following about a one-half hour later. It is the early summer of 1951, the last year of operations on the Southern. Abandonment would follow the next year.
