I am amazed that I'm not still stuck on top of a mountain.

A few weekends ago we (Mr. Owl and I, and some "Ultimate" friends) hiked climbed Mt. Katahdin in Baxter State Park, Maine.  It was wild. Much more intense than I thought it would be.  It was a test of my fear of heights, as a great deal of it (particularly Knife's Edge) involves scrambling up and over large boulders flanked by shear cliffs.  Frightening but well worth it.

It was a gorgeous day, mild yet sunny and without a cloud in the sky.  The view from the top was spectacular.

The climb upwards begins.

A beautiful day for a climb.
