Where in the woods am I? Blackcap Mountain

The highest temperature was 15 degrees Fahrenheit yesterday, Sunday, Feb. 12.  The wind was blowing. So naturally, I went hiking.

To guard against the cold, I wore my recently purchased Cloudveil ski jacket (found on super discount at Burlington Coat Factory), a furry bomber hat (tied under the chin), wool long underwear, and heat packs in my boots. All bundled up like that, I had a great time.

Guess where I hiked by viewing the photos below. Leave your best guess in the comments under this blog. I’ll let you know the answer by the end of the day. Hint: The trail was in the Bangor area.
