Day 102 – Rivers, Streams & Lakes

The question isn’t who’s going to let me; It’s who is going to stop me. – Ayn Rand

Miles hiked today 25. 

Today we had one mountain to climb and a lot of miles to cover. Other than that it was all about water. We started off today hopping from rock to rock over our first large stream. Then it was into the forest.

It was a truly beautiful walk up the mountain. Where we came across some unusual rocks and a cave.

As we walked up the mountain we had beautiful views.

Once again as we got closer to the summit it was all about walking and climbing across a rock face. These are some of my favorite things.

At the top it was glorious! 360° views of this beautiful state of Maine.

Then it was down down down and time to start crossing streams and rivers.

Are one true “fording the river” came-there was a riptide across for backpacks. It turned out to be too tall for me-and I yelled across to timeless just to leave her backpack on and walk across.

 I ended up taking my pack off the road and just carrying it across. We got to the other side dried up our feet, put back on our shoes, and continue to hike.

The lakes in Maine are so gorgeous. And they are everywhere!

Most of the day was simply putting in the miles to reach the highway where Hugh was waiting for us. 2 miles away we had our final vista where we sit down and enjoy the short break.

Loving Maine!
