We were determined to hike as much of the park as possible despite the rising temperatures. In a flat, sandy area surrounded by tall trees, we began to unload our gear.
Sweat poured down our faces and backs as we pitched our tent and rolled out our sleeping bags, which stuck to our skin in the heat. A hundred meters from camp, we found a water pump and used it to fill our glass bottles. By mid-afternoon, we had set out on a steep 1. The sun singed our skin, but ferns and birches and pines danced in a light breeze all around us. Everywhere was beauty. As we climbed, I listened for the birds.
The books brimmed with photos of gulls and loons filling the sky and dotting the shoreline. But on the trail, I heard nothing. I squinted toward Somes Sound in the distance, hoping to see the gulls as tiny white specks in the fjard, but saw only water. Where were the birds? The rodents?

The trees were still quiet—so quiet that we could hear human voices traveling up the cliff from the lake below. Then, suddenly, a bird call. A single gull appeared overhead, its belly a white flame against the blue sky. It circled above as if watching us, before disappearing from view. We waited for others to follow, but none came. Instead, more silence; more stillness. But in that moment, I felt a wave of sadness and wondered if it originated in the body of the lone gull.
A fleeting connection; an empathic exchange. I thought of my childhood self, delighting in pictures of water birds, and the sadness mushroomed into grief.
