Mt. Katahdin, ME

photo of Mt. Katahdin, MESome say that Mount Katahdin in Northern Maine is the one place in New England that has a distinctly western feel to it. From the bottom especially, the broad, massive mountain with its series of summits looks like something you might see in Montana or Wyoming. This photo, which was taken in the late 1980s, gives a view of the Knife Edge from the true summit of the mountain. There is a trail along the Knife Edge (which I took partway) that has dizzying views 2,000 feet below from either side of it.

For a larger version of this photo, go to the Mt. Katahdin, ME photo on the Travel Guide of America site.
