Well, I have been planning a return trip to the Baxter State Park in Maine in order to climb Mt. Katahdin in good weather. Last year I climbed the mountain on October 1, and it was raining, cold, and windy. REALLY COLD. Two days after I climbed it they closed all trails due to snow and ice. So, I been planning a quick trip for over a year and closely watching the weather. I even got my dad to go with me. And the weather was gorgeous. Anyway, I will probably make another post in a few days or so and try to get more trail shots up, but here are some other views of things that I did/saw. By the way, Katahdin is a mountain group in Maine that has several peaks. One of which is Baxter Peak and its the highest point in Maine and the end of the Appalachian Trail in the north. For those of you not familiar, the Appalachian Trail runs from northern Georgia to Maine, over 2100 miles.

bergfjord This is a fantastic series of nature pictures!
# 5 - 16 are spectacular! All postcard material. And aslo 20 - 25. Amazing nature! It looks so quiet and peaceful. Beautiful! :)
PS. Is there any fish in that water?

mrickard I was really fortunate with the moose like that. I got done climbing Katahdin the day before, and I decided to go look for moose early the next morning. You have to get to the gates at Baxter State Park by 4 in the morning to ensure you have a parking spot at the relatively small Roaring Brook parking lot. So, I set my alarm for 0245, left at 0330 and got to the gate by 4... and then just waited till they opened up at 0600. By 0630 I signed in at the rangers station and then walked the half mile to Sandy Stream Pond. Within 5 minutes of getting there, the moose came out. I shot till they left, and was back at the rangers station to sign out by 0730. I couldnt have paid the moose to do any more than that for me. It was a fabulous trip...
