On our way into, and out of Katahdin Lake, we ran into Holly Hamilton's crew hard at work to complete the transport of materials and supplies into Katahdin Lake Wilderness Camps for use next season. The weather forecast suggests that this activity may get much more difficult in the coming days as we are now entering a stretch of sunny and very warm weather, including days in the 60's early next week. A significant length of warm weather at this time will likely end snowmobile access to Chimney Pond for the Park Rangers and may re-route access for foot travel as well. Much of Maine now seems 3 weeks ahead of schedule and although still snow-covered, the Park may be in the same position. We may be hiking early this year.
