Sunrise from Antlers campsite

Day 176 - Mile 2170.8 - Abol Bridge

The last three days in the One Hundred Mile Wilderness have been spectacular. We awoke at the Antler's campsite to one of the most amazing sunrises that you have ever seen. The trail has been rugged but it has passed stream after stream and pond after pond the entire way. Last night we went to bed with the sound of singing loons, and they sang all night long, even when we got up at 3 in the morning they were still singing their songs. We stayed at Rainbow Springs Campsite last night and today we got a fantastic view of Katahdin from Rainbow Legends. Katahdin is an Indian name that stands for the great mountain, and it truly is a magnificent mountain. It stands alone and rises all by itself in the Maine wilderness. Although the weather has been spectacular up to now they are calling for an 80 percent chance for rain tomorrow and 70% chance on Tuesday, but Wednesday looks much better with a 10% chance of rain, so the plan now is to re-supply and to hike the 10 miles to the base of Katahdin and wait for the first good day of weather to summit. Hopefully, the very longest we will have to wait is to Wednesday. We met a lot of hikers who had summited either today or within the last couple of days and everyone was very excited. Tough Cookie and Pressure D are ready for the challenge of hiking the great mountain.
