Pamola And Chimney Peaks
Photograph - Photography
On 8/12/13 my husband and I took the most exhilarating hike of my life. We hiked up Mount Katahdin (Baxter State Park, Maine), via the Helon Taylor Trail across the Knife Edge (which has the reputation of scaring even experienced hikers). After reaching Pamola Peak (left peak, 4,902 feet), we had to enter the Chimney. Itís approximately a 30-foot drop into a rock-walled crevice without metal rungs, ropes or a climbing harness. This is the point where I said my goodbyes! Descending the Pamola side of the Chimney (backwards) was less difficult of the two climbs. We climbed up the more treacherous side of Chimney Peak. This photo was taken at 200mm from Baxter Peak. You can see the tiny hikers at the top of Pamola Peak.
