Ascent Trip Report

I will never forget this mountian, i had dreamt i would hike this mountian some day, i had waited patiently for the chance to climb this mountian, it was the best hike of my life. i hiked in threw to the pond, and up cathederal, over to baxter peak and over to hamlin, down hamlin ridge trail and back through the pond, we had a blast, staying at abol in the lean 2's it was the best experiance of my life, i am hoping someday to become a outdoorsmen and maybe hike all the time, it would only be a dreamjob but a set and determinded goal, the best hike ever, ill never forget it!

"when it comes to hiking, you are faced with exerything, you can let go of everything you have, relax, live the memories you cherrish, and life your life to the fullest,that one memory of reaching the summit is all our goals, it makes us proud to stand at the top and look down at our challange and say, yes i've down it"!!!
