Two Thru-Hikers Nearing Katahdin

MIT students Eric and Matthew are hiking the Appalachian Trail this season, and crossed into Maine just last Friday. Their dad Keith is tracking their progress on his blog.
Mt Katahdin is getting closer each day. From the stories Eric and Matthew tell they are in no hurry to get off the trail. Judging by how much they are enjoying the trek, Mt Katahdin may be too close. Yesterday was another 26 mile marathon to Horns Pond Lean-to. They wanted to find a elevated camp at 3,300 feet in order to get a clear look at the starry sky. The caretaker at the shelter told them a mother moose and her calf have been showing up at the nearby pond early most mornings. They hope to spot them in the bright and early. [Link]

Howdy, Thanks for picking up the blog on all things Maine. I have really enjoyed writing it. I got an email from a reader who found it randomly. The wonders of the net.
