Getting closer….

Just to give everyone an update, I made it out of the 100 Mile Wilderness this afternoon & hiked the 21.1 miles into Baxter State Park this evening. The weather forecast for tomorrow is not conducive to climbing Mount Katahdin, a 5,268 foot rocky mountain, the highest peak in Maine & the end of the Appalachian Trail. You do alot of rock climbing and even though it is only 5.8 miles to the summit they recommend to allow 8-10 hours for the round trip hike!
A HUGE thank you goes out to Susu Peoples for a suggestion she made tonight. It is something that I have never tried but am open to trying it & will do a practice run sometime tomorrow. As I am approaching the summit of Katahdin on Tuesday, do a “Facebook Live!” What do you think???!!! Here is a photo of Mount Katahdin this afternoon.
