    I just saw a post on " the Trek" from a northbounder dated yesterday that she was heading North out of Gorham starting today towards Katahdin. Interestingly she mentioned that she had encountered a lot of other northbounders on her hike across the whites so presumably they are also heading north. Looks like a lot of optimists will be eating Turkey in Millinocket this year In the past most northbound thru hikers this late in the season zero in town for a few days after a rough trip over the presidentials and then hop the bus to Logan airport as getting off the trail and headed home gets to be a lot more expensive once they leave Gorham

    I have seen folks who look like thruhikers heading through town of late but assumed they were southbounders. There has been snow on the summits a couple of times in the last few weeks and temps are dropping at night (supposed to be in the mid to low twenties at night this week with snow forecast).
