I'm in Maine!!
Don't we look like a bunch of bad-to-the-bone backpackers?
Some people refer to Maine as "water world". There are so many ponds and lakes, even high in the mountains.
A couple days ago, we went through Mahoosuc notch, which is labeled in the guidebook as "the most difficult, or fun mile on the AT". I guess it was fun, but my body sure hurt afterwards. All night, my knees were aching despite taking plenty of Motrin. This mile took us two and a half hours to do. It is a huge rock scramble where you are climbing over and under big boulders. Many times we were squatting down or even kneeling on our knees. At one time we were laying down scooting like a worm! Sparky might kill me for this pic, but obviously I don't have one of myself, nor would I post such an embarrassing pic of myself! Hahaha
Miles hiked: 1927.3
Miles to go: 256.9
