ALan posted some great pics of Katahdin on NEIce Mike. Looks like it is coming along nicely. But you know New england...it could turn 70 and rainy tomorrow.

I think it's closed from Oct 15- Dec 1. I seem to remember reading that Baxter created the closure times so that the animals could enjoy the park on their own terms for a few months a year.

That is the rut season for the Moose so I am not surprised to hear that it is closed.  ;)
