Day: 161, 9/28/2013: Abot Bridge campsite

11.2 miles hiked, Fantastic day in the 70’s and sunny. No clouds at all. Great views of Katahdin. Mostly flat hiking so was at the campsite by noon. There was a restaurant and store at the campsite. I was going to push on another 10 miles to camp and summit Katahdin Sunday but there were no campsites left at the Birches or Katahdin Stream Campground. So a few of us got a tent site and camped out. We also got our name on the list for the Birches shelter which is only available to thru-hikers.

This photo is a great shot of Katahdin with the fall foliage just starting.
