Mount Katahdin


I had thought that I would take advantage of this day off from snow to get around town for some photos. Unfortunately, my youngest is sick, so I'm still homebound. I decided to post my favorite photo from a recent snowmobiling trip that we took in Baxter State Park. The park is about 3 hours Northeast of us. The mountain that is peeking out of the clouds is Mount Katahdin, the highest mountain in Maine. It's a very challenging mountain in the best of weather - my husband and I have both climbed it - I can only imagine how cold it was up there on that day. While we were riding, the temperature hovered around zero degrees Farenheit, with extreme winds. We're looking forward to taking the boys up in a few years - in the summer! Children are not allowed to climb it until they are 10 years of age, for safety reasons.
