We took a side trip up to Baxter while I was in Maine and got a wonderful picture of Katahdin with snow. It was very pretty but the drive was crazy as we had gotten about 20 inches of snow 2 days before. I love to hike when it is cold. I really hate the heat so I look forward to winter hiking. I don't backpack in the winter, as of yet, but love to day hike. I am looking to hike some in PA this winter.

Thanks for the push to get out over the holidays. We generally don't get out much once the weather gets cold. But speaking of Maine. It reminds me that I want to plan a summer trek to Baxter! Take care. emoticon

Ok, folks..........
I have been so out of the loop as I have been in a cast for 2 weeks then in PT, but on the mend and ready to hike.
I am heading for Maine for the holidays and will be hiking some while I am there. I hope you can all get out and hike during the holiday season.
After the new year it will be time to get back into full swing and get out hiking so look forward to some challenges, as I am hopefully Back.............

Hi, I will have to look on the map where your town is. I won't be doing any hiking until I move up to Dahlonega. That will be when I sell my house here. I think it is great the Trail Dames are there.. and you like to hike etc. Like your name I could probably be.. Shoe BES ..meaning slowest hiker on earth ...but even slower I do move slow.

I want to hike to the waterfalls up there. I bought a book of all of them, and I want to walk to each. So far I have one down! Now I can see that with you and others from the Trail Dames that maybe we could even make some trails a day event of it.

I just don't want to get out in places by myself. I have done some pretty stupid stuff in the past going out by myself. Now getting older, I realize I just can't do what I used to think I could do, but I need to find to make it happen in another way.. with others help.

I think it is so cool you are actually hiking the AT. I do hope some day to add to my mileage of it!

HI All, Shoe you had mentioned about the Georgia Trail Dames, and I looked all around their site. Nice to know big women are getting together to hike ..and at a pace we can accomplish!

I took another look and saw your picture! Great pic of you and the moose in the background. You said someday you might join them. I did not realize that you already had, and that was who you did your last hike with!

It sure sounded wet and cold too! I would think they would planed hikes etc in warmer weather. November is winter for sure to me.

You never said where you live up in Georgia. I sure would like to give a try and hike, but I need a team around me to make sure I am ok ...like water and shelter..and to get me out if needed. I am such a wimp... just a city girl, but I want to get out and experience the outdoors!
