Cross the middle of Mt Dessert Island - 11 peaks

Last night I was trying to find information on doing a cross island hike.  I know some folks have done it as they had articles in the newspaper but I could only find one blog last night.  Very surprised.   Got a later start then I had wanted so I skipped Champlain and started at bottom of Dorr.  First two peaks were not bad.   West Side trail down Cadillac was hard.  It took about an hour longer than I thought it would.  Well prepared on water/drinks but totally got the food side all wrong. 

Here is the route:


Here are the 11 peaks in photos:

I was expecting to see basketball legend Downtown Freddy...
