WELCOME

This site is my way of keeping track of our many climbs over the years and sharing this experience with others.

Mount Katahdin (pronounced /kəˈtɑːdən/, “kə-TAH-dən“) is the highest mountain in the U.S. state of Maine at 5,267 feet (1,605 m). Named Katahdin by the Penobscot Indians, which means “The Greatest Mountain”. Katahdin is in Baxter State Park, which is in east central Piscataquis County, about 25 mi (40 km) northwest of Millinocket.

Mt. Katahdin has several trails leading up to either Pamola or Baxter Peak. The most famous hike to the summit goes along Knife Edge, which traverses the ridge between Pamola Peak and Baxter Peak. Source: Wikipedia. To read all about Katahdin click HERE

Leaving Chimney Pond

“Man is born to die,  his works are short-lived.  Buildings crumble, monuments decay, wealth vanishes.  But Katahdin in all its glory, forever shall remain the mountain of the people of Maine”
~ Percival B. Baxter
