Since the beginning of this semester I decided I wanted to do the Mt. Katahdin winter hike through Maine Bound, the outdoor adventure center on campus which offers awesome trips!
I would have done it no matter what, but fortunately four of my friends joined me, as well as 5 great people from Maine Bound ! It was quite cold and very challenging, but incredible!
I loved every minute except for about 40 on the way back from the summit because there were some serious winds making the temperatures at least -20. The area is so beautiful!

|Tyler and Wil hiking up Abol slide - crampons and ice axes were handy! And helmets!|
|Cold at the top, face frozen so I got windburn|
|Excited to make it! Didn't hang out long though|
