From Eileen: We made it back tonight from Maine. It was a great weekend at Baxter State Park with Troop 507 and friends — 18 of us in total. We are pulling the blog together along with some great photos, and hope to have it posted tomorrow night! Meanwhile, here are some other things that happened this weekend:
On Friday, Rick, Philip and I made a slight detour on our way to Baxter to stop by the Abol Bridge over the Penobscot River, which is the boundary between the 100 Mile Wilderness and Baxter State Park. In honor of Tori Barrow, who confidently completed these 100 miles and more (see Day 47), we hiked in about 50 yards to take our picture with the sign:
While a few days earlier our friend Liz Kinchen and her buddy Rose hiked Mount Major, in New Hampshire, in Rick’s name. As you can see, the summit rewards you with a gorgeous view of Lake Winnipesaukee. Thank you Liz!
