Katahdin is this daunting mountain from a distance and her call of intimidation does not disappoint. The climb was strenuous and rocky but such a thrill to summit.
We left about 7:00 am and reached the big brown sign about 11:30. I celebrated with a dozen other thru-hikers. I was the last of the large group to arrive so I got to stand on the sign for the photo – I felt so honored to have that special spot.
Some very special hikers from YWAM hiked to the top as well. These three guys ministered to me in powerful ways throughout my journey from Harpers Ferry. Bamboo, Ungerwhere, and Mountain Light are friends for eternity.
I have attached a photo of Mark Shaeffer, my dear friend who drove all the way from Ohio to pick me up, and RaceWalker, who hiked the last 450 miles of the trail with me.
God is faithful. I am truly overwhelmed by His grace.
