A great weekend of hiking in Maine, we lucked out and had two gorgeous days with perfects views. Luckily we brought our tent as the lean-to at Piazza Rock Campsite was somewhat full, had a wonderful time down by the fire pit that night and met some nice people. Our initial plan was to hike out Monday AM, as we did not start hiking until later Sat afternoon due to our lovely 8hr car ride from CT and we wanted to take our time and enjoy the great weather. The extra bit of hiking to Piazza Rock proved to be well worth it, we had a great time exploring the “cave” and “gravity defying” rock.

Sunday we hit both peaks, crystal clear day, and arrived back to our tent in the afternoon. The ridge walk was absolute breathtaking, could not have asked for more perfect weather. Due to the incoming weather that was expected overnight we decided to hike out Sunday, although I will admit the fresh bear prints we found when we awoke that morning had a little to do with that as well. After some well deserved pizza and ice cream we headed back to CT, however, not before getting to see three moose casually grazing on the side of the road.
