It 5:00 AM. My daughter named the newly launched canoe "Katahdin" and went for her first paddle by herself, smile.gif :cool:

Great shot. I'm surprised I can't see the vapor of your daughter's breath and that film of ice that must have been on the pond that morning.
What a Spring! I'm sneaking in moments to get paint on.
Can't say I'm envious of those sailing about in the bay. You'd have to be rigged for artic conditions. Oh well. It'll turn soon.

This picture tells a bazillion words.

If you look at the highest peak on the mountain (Baxter Peak the end of the Appalachain Trail) and follow right to the the next Peak (Pamola), in between, is a ridge called the Knife's Edge. In some places it is just a few feet wide and each side careens precipitiously downward. On the opposite side of this ridge is this little treasure called Chimney Pond. To describe that place is beyond the bazillion words I've got when I think of Baxter State Park.
My first trip across the Knife's Edge at 10 years old began my path to Maine and I hadn't even seen the coast at that time.

The message here is, get your kid's around. The mall and the TV just aren't inspiring enough.
Thanks again Hugh.

Stop it Hughman! You're making me homesick.

Great picture, all it needs is a moose.
