Trip to Maine

Last week I went with a friend to Baxter State Park in Maine to climb the high point, Mt. Katahdin (5268 feet). The climb was amazing...great weather, unbelievable scenary...an altogether perfect day. I have never visited Maine before so I enjoyed seeing what the state had to offer. It was some of the most beautiful country I have every seen...quite an adventure. Can't wait to climb another...so FUN!

One of the spectacular views (during the majority of the hike you could look out and see scenes just like this one...it was spectacular)

This picture reminds me of "Where's Waldo"..."Where's Jenny" amidst all the large boulders?


Me, pretending to fall off "Knife Edge" :)

The view from our lean-to at our campsite. Love it!

Our accomodations...my first night in a hammock...that was also great...I highly recommend it.


After the climb, we went and stayed with another friend at his lake house in Palermo, Maine. This picture is of me standing on a rock in the middle of the lake. I think it is great because it looks like I am walking on water..now that takes talent!

The view in the evening, looking over the lake.
