Ascent Trip ReportAl and I headed up to Maine to finish off the county high points and county prominence points list. If all went well Al would finish both lists and I would be two peaks shy of completing Maine.
We headed off after work on Tuesday and drove 130 miles to Whitten Hill in Bowdoin Maine. This was a five minute walk to bag the most prominent point in Sagadahoc County. Next up was a 20 mile drive to Blinn Hill in Dresden Maine. Another five minute walk had us at the most prominent point in Lincoln County. We closed out the day with 150 mile drive to Pleasant Mountain in Devereaux Twp where we set up camp near the end of the logging road we'd be hiking on in the morning.
Drive = 300 miles
Hike = 10 minutes
Peaks = 2
