Ascent Trip Report

Absolutely beautiful day, not a cloud in the sky. Went up Abol Slide and came down the Hunt Trail. If you have never been, about a mile up from the Katahdin Stream campground is the Katahdin Stream Falls, several large plunges of water. Breathtaking, and it brought some life back into the legs after the 11 mile 8 hour hike. We thought we did quite well since my hiking partner was battling a bad cold.
