24 July 2009

After climbing the steep ascent of Moosilauke Mountain's north side and staying in the Beaver Brook Shelter yesterday, it was time to finish The Whites. The hoped for clear weather did not materialize and the hike up and over was wet and windy. Somewhat to my surprise, the descent was more gradual and the trail more "groomed" than expected. The spectacular "Whites" are completed!

Trail conditions changed quickly to cushiony pine needles and deciduous forest.

To celebrate, completed my first day hiking over 20 miles (22.6).

Farewell to the Whites and Maine's 100 Mile Wilderness - often mentioned as the two most challenging sections of the AT.
