    The white peak in that photo is Mount Katahdin, 5,267 feet. Bill: yup. More stunning photos from the top:

    Now they have a video up of that $500 run (scroll down a bit on their Facebook page). It's nice for me to be able to relive a run down Penobscot which I probably last did in 1972. It starts off with a gentle pitch under the chair, then drops off to the right into a wide moderate headwall with that vast view. After that it's a nice easy cruise to the bottom. The run is bordered by dense evergreens for more than half of its vertical.

    That pitch of Penobscot is the only trail you can see in this webcam from across Moosehead Lake: http://mooseheadlake.us/

    mapnut, thanks.And on my screen, your answer appears just above Mt. Kadahdin  question, which makes it look like you answered it before I asked it. I knew you were good. I didn't know you were that good
