Yesterday morning I summited Mt. Katahdin, the highest point in Maine, completing my Appalachian Trail journey.
It was by far the steepest and rockiest climb of the trail but I felt like I was floating on air the whole way up. Five of us thru-hikers summitted together in a tandem train-like fashion and we practically ran up the 5 miles and 4000 feet of elevation change in under two hours. Adrenaline carried us to the top and the perfect weather allowed us to stay for a couple hours. Usually it’s too windy and cold to hang on top for very long.
I plan to post a more detailed reflection, but for now enjoy the photos!
