Completion of the Appalachian Trail - Mount Katahdin in Maine


I have been asked buy a couple of people for a photography at Katahdin.  I had posted one on facebook, but with the weather conditions that were present, it was not conducive to photography so I had not posted it here.  After a few request, I decided to do so.

Katahdin is the terminus of the Appalachian Trail and truly is an appropriate mountain for the terminus.  I was unable to get the full view, but about halfway down their was a gap in the clouds that allowed us  to get a peak of some of the views.   The rain and wind made most of the hike "uncomfortable", but it did not take away the sense of accomplishment.   I guess in some ways it was only right for there to be rain at the end of my hike since so much of this years hike seemed to take place under the same conditions.

Congratulations! It's neat to see you at the end after following you for so long. I'm leaving in February for the AT and I can't wait.

Peter, good luck on your journey. I hope you enjoy your trip as much as I have. Will you have a blog for your trip?

I will, but I don't have an address or one setup for it yet. I'll definitely let you know when I do set it up so you can follow it.

Mylife. if you do get the chance..or can make the chance happen..do it. Even if it is not for the entire hike..just go for as long as you can. It will be worth it.
