    Katahdin and Hamlin 6/16/13

    Headed to Baxter to hike my favorite loop. Finally had decent weather on a day I could get there.
    Great day. When was the last time you had a Presidential Peak to yourself on a summer Sunday. Hardly anyone at Roaring Brook lot. I passed a few on Chimney Pond Trail and a few groups on Knife Edge but had summit of Katahdin to myself, Hamlin too, but that's normal. Became a cloudy but they were high clouds and had good visibility. Could easily make out Big Squaw and Coburn which were in hazier direction so well over 50 miles. Black Flies were rough on ridges above treeline but nonexistent from Hamlin to Pamola. Very Heavy above treeline on Helon Taylor. Worst bugs were at Togue Pond gate, mosquitoes were miserable at best while checking in.



    Trails were not too bad. A little muddy on Chimney Pond Trail, otherwise dry. A few patches of snow hanging on the basin walls.
    LOTS of pics and full report on my blog:

    Really nice pics of Katahdin man.... Another nice day up there, of course there really are no bad days up in the woods...only a lack of human preparedness.

    I lucked out. As you know it's been dreary the past month and not too many clear days coincided with my off days. The rain didn't start until 5pm and the clouds stayed high letting me get in this great day.
