Mt. Katahdin

I had been thinking about climbing Mt. Katahdin for about a year, and my family decided to finally do it in 2006.

Since this was the first time we had ever attempted a mountain of this height and challenge, we decided to take the Hunt Trail, which is the eastern end of the Appalachian Trail.

Mother Nature wasn't on our side, however, as we were in the clouds soon after we cleared the tree line, and it started raining before we reached the summit at Baxter Peak.

It took us 14 hours to complete, but we made it !

    Excellent advice in your tips and great photos too! It looks like quite an adventure - one that I've always considered doing as well.
