After studying our Mount Desert Island map this morning, we decided to hike to the top of Dorr Mountian. We took the ladder trail up and the northern ridge trail down. The climb up was basically a never-ending set of rock stairs until we approached the summit. The climb down was very hairy…super steep and covered with rocks. Reversing the trails might have made it a bit easier.
Later in the afternoon, we drove into Bar Harbor and watched Uraguay beat South Africa in the World Cup match and had a few beers…the perfect way to end a long hike.
Back at the campsite, tarp-master Randy set up for the expected rain and we embarked on a night of nerdology .
