We started our morning with a climb up Gulf Hagas Mountain. We then hiked up West Peak, Hay Mountain and Whitecap Mountain. On the northern side of Whitecap Mountain we got our first view of Katahdin! Our final peak was still 70+ miles away but just seeing it was exhilarating. We arrived at the Cooper Brook Falls Lean-to early and took a swim at the falls before dinner. We hiked 18.9 miles total for the day.
