I took a hike to Abol Falls last week and found this little gem along the trail. πŸ„πŸƒ#shroomseries #traildreams #lovemaineadventures #mainehighlands #greatnorthwoods #mainewoods #everytrailconnects #rei1440project #flora

The Tableland πŸ’™πŸŒΌβ˜€οΈβ˜οΈ .

With nothing but sky, distant mountain ridges, boulders, plants and low shrubs. When the weather is favorable, I could stay up here all day. #lovemaineadventures #tableland #alpinezone #alpineflowers #baxterstatepark #mountainaddict #choosemountains

Grateful for the volunteers and staff who build the magnificent trails that we walk on and climb. These granite steps were much appreciated on my descent on Abol. #baxterstatepark #lovemaineadventures #amcoutdoors #greatnorthwoods #traildreams #everytrailconnects #maine #visitmaine #optoutside

"In Katahdin many encounter the mystical. Some consider the mountain sacred because its presence and its overpowering grandness guide them toward inner contemplation of the vital center of all being. They are like pilgrims seeking the elemental heartbeat or pulse of the spirit" ~ Andrew W.

In my element, scrambling up and between granite boulders on my first solo ascent of this great mountain. #choosemountains #mountaincrushmonday #lovemaineadventures #followthewhiteblaze #appalachiantrail

He used to tell me he was afraid of heights. Not understanding how he acquired that phobia, I inquired further. Turned out he was trying to get out of hiking. You know, because hiking is hard. πŸ˜… I've strategically ignored his complaints about not wanting to hike in the hope I can trick him into loving it. He's come a long way in the last few years and he still is a reluctant hiker. However, he loves ladders and boulders on the trail and now he can say he's climbed the hardest trail in #acadianationalpark. πŸ™‹πŸΌβ€β™‚οΈπŸŒ²πŸ‘Œ

A perfect summer day is when you cool off in a lake after your hike, swim in a pool after lunch, and take a dip in the ocean before dinner. πŸ’™πŸ‘ŒπŸŒŠ #lovemaineadventures #summerlove #freerangekids #acadianationalpark #atlanticocean #summertime #maine #visitmaine #kidswhoexplore #mainekids

She is the figure amidst the fog, stepping over rocks and climbing boulders, traversing the spine of this great mountain.

She craves the cool mist that spills up from the ravines and takes in the sweet air on her descent.
Daydreaming of the warm sun and blue contours that lie beyond the mist, she knows they can be found in her dreams.

Then the clouds lift, revealing the vast beauty all around, and the great mountain behind her.
She remarks to herself that the mountains are ever changing, but also unwavering. Just like her.

Back in the valley, she knows the mountains will be waiting, unchanged, but completely different than the last time.

And that is the thing she loves most. πŸ’™

Sandy trails, glacier covered peaks, evergreen trees, and bright meadows. πŸ˜πŸŒ²πŸ’š #pnwwonderland #pacificcresttrail #pnw #pct #andshesdopetoo #herpnwlife #nationalforest #sheexplores #everytrailconnects #forceofnature
