    Backpacking in Baxter State Park, 9/22-9/27/18

    We had a terrific five-night backpack in Baxter State Park, 9/22-9/27. Our itinerary was as follows:

    Sat 9/22 - Roaring Brook to Russell Pond
    Sun 9/23 - Russell Pond to Wassataquoik Lake Island
    Mon 9/24 - 2nd night on Wass. Lake Island
    Tue 9/25 - Wass. Lake Island to Davis Pond
    Wed 9/26 - Davis Pond to Chimney Pond
    Thu 9/27 - Chimney Pond to Roaring Brook, and out.

    We helped carry an injured hiker up to Russell Pond late Wednesday night into early Thursday morning.

    A rewarding but rugged trip. Sustained strong wind and rain made the trip from Davis to Chimney a bit unpleasant.

    Beautiful, as always!

    Excellent, thank you. I imagine it was tough carrying a backpack up Hamlin Ridge.
