This is a trail. I’m not joking.

Hiking in Maine was a humbling experience. I am by no means a backpacker, but I do consider myself to be in pretty good shape….generally. Well, the words, “Maine Guide” now generate the same level of respect and awe as do, “U.S. Marine.” The only difference between a hiking trail in Maine and a mountain stream bed, composed mostly of boulders, is a few handfuls of soil between the boulders. I was exhausted coming down. I felt that my insides had been jounced to pulp. Meanwhile twenty-somethings are bobbing past, dressed in shorts, with a spring in their step. Would I have liked Maine hiking better when I was younger, I wonder? Just kidding…..It was great!
