Mount Katahdin is one of the most notable landmarks in the Northeast. It’s the centerpiece of Baxter State Park, the tallest mountain in Maine (5,269 feet in elevation), and the northern terminus of the Appalachian Trail (A.T.). The Penobscots named it “Katahdin,” which translates to “The Greatest Mountain.” To them it represented the beginning of life, a place of birth and spiritual enlightenment. While the Penobscots made their living in the surrounding regions of the mountain, they cautioned against climbing to the summit. They believed that an evil spirit called Pamola resided there.
“Many years ago, a large group of us planned a trip to Baxter State Park in the late summer. The trip included getting off the Turnpike too early, almost getting in an accident with a logging truck, being treated to a telescopic view of the Milky Way, hiking, and plenty of laughter. The day before our planned Katahdin hike, a small group of us visited Kidney Pond. It was here that we caught our first view of Mount Katahdin, its mighty form reflecting in the stillness of the pond as clouds swept by the peak. To say it was stunning is an understatement and this was one view that I felt compelled to capture in the graphic artwork depicted here. Unfortunately, our hike was thwarted by a heavy rainstorm that arrived in the middle of the night so we never ended up ascending Maine’s tallest mountain. Years later the memories from this trip still make me smile.”
