All told, in 2021 we hiked over 500 miles, backpacked the Trans-Catalina Trail in California, finished hiking the New England 67 4,000 footer list, and most importantly, tried to stay as present and grateful as possible during these experiences.
We saved this huge hike of Knife Edge Trail to Mount Katahdin’s Baxter and Hamlin Peaks to finish the New England 67 list of 4,000 footers.
It was a wet hike up to North Brother Mountain in Baxter State Park for our 65th peak of the New England 67.
Two more 4,000 footers in Maine! These peaks in Bigelow Preserve boast outstanding views of the surrounding mountains and Flagstaff Lake.
These three 4,000 footers in Maine are part of the NE67 hiking list. Crocker and South Crocker are along the Appalachian Trail and Mount Redington offers the only “bushwhack” for a 4,000 footer in New England, though it’s an easy herd path to follow.
On a crisp spring day, we hiked a loop to Mount Agamenticus, Second Hill, and Third Hill close to the coast of Maine.
In 2020, we hiked roughly 500 miles and learned a great deal about our limits, capabilities, and love for being in nature. It was hard to choose, but here are our top 10 hiking experiences this year. Here’s to many more in 2021!
A clear and windy day on Saddleback and the Horn in Maine for 54 and 55 of the New England 67 4,000 footers!
In frost, wind, and sun, we completed a ~13 mile traverse over three 4,000 footers in Maine: Sugarloaf, Spaulding, and Abraham.
At near-peak fall foliage time, we hiked our first 4,000 footer in Maine, Old Speck Mountain.
