After completing my Katahdin hike on Tuesday. I hiked out of Baxter State Park and into the 100 mile Maine Wilderness. It was very hot and I hiked about 13.5 miles. It is a wilderness! Did not see any big critters but there is evidence of them on the trails. A couple of small snakes crossed the path in from if me, made me jump for a second. I need to get use to it. I’m doing well but very tired legs. Hope to get my hiking legs soon. The trail is even tougher then I thought.
