Comments
Comments: Well, I thought i’d Head back to Maine to kick off section hiking... Maine said I was not ready.

The last time I hiked Old Speck, there was snow... I prefer that hike. The elevation zapped my energy and I turned back 1.5 from the summit. I did enjoy the slabs and the views though. It was a beautiful day.
