Our merry gang on Doubletop, on Thursday.

Cindy and me on Doubletop.

A pretty but poisonous amanita.

Another pretty but poisonous amanita.
IMG_0875.jpg
No idea what this one is.
IMG_0876.jpg
I don't know this one either. The metallic bronze color was quite striking.
IMG_0878.jpg
My favorite fungus from the trip. The one at the lower left looks like it's hatching from an egg, and you can still see the same structure at the base of the one on the right. The color and sheen of the one on the right are also very appealing.
IMG_0879.jpg
A particularly unpalatable-lookng bolete.
IMG_0880.jpg
There were just a lot of cool mushrooms, OK?
IMG_0881.jpg
We saw lots of these, and many had a similar near-perfect shape. Must be deadly.
IMG_0882.jpg
OK, last one. Really.
IMG_0884.jpg
Cute newt.
IMG_0885.jpg
The one on the left is about the same size as the one in the next picture.
IMG_0886.jpg
Someone told Cindy to kiss it. That's how she got me, of course.
IMG_0887.jpg
About three inches long, in case you were wondering. I'd love to see what this metamorphoses into.
IMG_0888.jpg
Everyone got a kick out of this slightly obscene tree. Gives a whole new meaning to the phrase "packing wood" doesn't it?
IMG_0892.jpg
Cindy at the local version of Niagara Falls, on Friday.
IMG_0893.jpg
The falls themselves, a tiny bit upstream from the previous picture.
IMG_0895.jpg
Doubletop from the stream near camp.
IMG_0896.jpg
Katahdin itself.
IMG_0899.jpg
The view up Abol Slide, on Saturday. It's even more daunting when you're actually climbing it.
IMG_0900.jpg
Our no-longer-so-merry little band, getting kind of cool just below the plateau on Katahdin. Except for taking this picture, I mostly hid in the little cave at the lower left.
IMG_0902.jpg
The Knife Edge. We didn't go that way, and just as well considering the weather.
IMG_0904.jpg
Cindy at the cairn on top of Baxter Peak (the highest of Katahdin's several).
IMG_0905.jpg
Both of us at the sign on Baxter Peak.
IMG_0911.jpg
The gang, seeking shelter again near the top.
IMG_0912.jpg
The view down Hunt Trail. It really looks like you're about to step off the edge of the world.
