Haut Jeep

 Basha Burwell spotted the Jeep Station Wagon on an expedition to Aisle a' Ho in August, where out-of-date plates rule.We've posted from there before, including a portfolio from the photographer Winky Lewis.  The French explorer (and founder of Quebec) Samuel de Champlain named Isle au Haut on one of his sounding expeditions up and down our coast. He must have hit a lot of rocks. Champlain also named the Isle of Mont-Desert, where Acadia National Park is--(except for a small slice of the National Park that's on Isle au Haut). Fischer's book on Champlain is pretty good.
