I mentioned yesterday that there was a group photo-shoot on top of Katahdin with all the thru-hikers that made the summit that morning. I was the last to arrive at the sign. It was amazing because the group was already gathered around the sign when someone saw me coming. I heard someone shout my name and urged me to join the picture – then the group started to cheer for me and shout my name. They told me to touch the sign and then join the celebration.
After my hand slap on the big brown wooden sign, someone suggested that I climb the sign for the picture. I could not believe the place of honor that was spontaneously mine.
I thought I would share this photo with you as well.
