Hew Hampshire ushered us out gracefully with one last summit, Mt. Success, a fitting name for our accomplishments. It was a windy undertaking. We were beyond ecstatic to reach the Maine border
It was a huge milestone, 13 states down, 1 to go and called for celebration. We invited Captain Morgan along to the festivities at the border sign along with cookies.

Maine slapped us in the face for a wake up call. She doesn't fool around. She was rough, tough and rugged right from the get go with steep climbs,
And let's not forget the dipping temperatures. I had to ask for it yesterday didn't I? We went from 90's yesterday to dropping temps as the day went on and tonight they are forecasted to dip below freezing. Welcome to Maine.
