A consultant anesthesiologist and partner with Southern Maryland Anesthesia Associates, LLC, Dr. Aarohi Ambardekar ensures the well-being of patients undergoing surgery. Outside of work, Dr. Aarohi Ambardekar enjoys family trips to scenic areas and has hiked in national parks including Shenandoah and Acadia.
Located in Maine, Acadia National Park is a rugged spot where coastline and mountains meet and is mostly situated on Mt. Desert Island. The isle was named in 1604 by explorer Samuel de Champlain, who called it the “the island of barren mountains.” It was taken over by mansions in the guise of summer cottages in the mid-1800s, with yachts dotting rocky harbors.
The contemporary park is unique in having been created from donated private property. The patchy park boundaries were formally set in place by Congress in 1986. One of America’s most visited national parks, Acadia receives 2.5 million visitors each year and can experience summer gridlock.
