Day 140 – Friday, July 27
114 Miles remaining to Mt. Katahdin, Maine – and Lobsterfest
Coming into Monson, ME yesterday afternoon was pretty emotional knowing it’s the last trail town until I complete my thru-hike. Monson is the southern most point of the 100-mile wilderness before entering Baxter State Park and Mt. Katahdin. I’m having lots and lots of mixed emotions these days as my journey’s end is very near.
The pictures below are some of my last in New Hampshire before crossing over the state line and entering my last state…Maine.
Proud to be a new member of the 2,000-miler club!
On top of Avery Peak…great views and great weather!
Screwloose doing another food challenge in Stratton.
Those beavers know how to do some construction work!
Crossing the Kennebec River by the last man powered ferry service in the country.
A memorial sits out in front of the Pierce Pond Lean-to for Parkside, the first 2012 thru-hiker to die on the trail. He drowned while swimming in Pierce Pond.
Just a few additional photos below, while hiking through Maine.
Wow…I’m very close to the end and Mt. Katahdin. Looking forward to the 100-Mile Wilderness up ahead.
