THE MAINE EVENT

August 21 - September ?

Miles: 1891 - 2189.2

Service in Maine is very limited so I'll post when I can. In the meantime here are some recent phots.

What I can say about Maine so far is that it's very muddy but very beautiful! The first 150 miles of the state were extremely tough and after just finishing the White's we were exhausted. But now that we can see the end in sight, we're determined to push on through long days. After a week of mostly 20+ mile days, we're now in Monson, ME and preparing to head into the 100 mile wilderness tomorrow.

The 100 mile wilderness should take about a week to complete and ends at Baxter State Park. The following day we'll head up Mt. Katahdin to the northern terminus of the AT.

It's been an amazing journey so far and hard to believe that I have only a week left in the trail.

See you on the top of Katahdin!

 Adios, Neemor, Southpaw and Me at the NH/Maine sign!

 I'd waited so long to touch that sign, I wanted to take it with me!

 Mahoosuc Notch. The hardest mile on the trail. Here's Neemor scooting through a tight squeeze. Follow the arrows, I guess!

 Lots of rain, slick rock, lots of slipping.
