Our big winter adventure at Baxter State Park and Mt Katahdin. The temperature the week we were there was never higher than +5F and was as low as -20F when we climbed Cilley-Barber.

Spending the week in a lean-to was an interesting experience, subjecting your body, cloths and equipment to continuous subzero degrees (F) for a week straight. Needless to say, not too many other people were around and we pretty much had the area for ourselves.

Lots of pictures and comments (you don't need a FB account to see):

You stayed in the lean-to all week!!!! you are a glutton for punishment man!

Nico:
We were in the bunk house - saw your lights bobbing on the ridge - a bit worried but we learned you did just fine. Kudos.

Admin Al:
great pictures man, sounds like a great time was had by all.

rbirk:
We had an awesome time. First time in winter for me (and first time ever for my friends). Yes, now afterwards we may have been a little nuts staying in the lean-to all week. But it was a great experience! Seems most other ones were empty or only visited for a night or so. No idea why? :)
