Maine trip - Mt Katahdin advises?
Jul 30, 2009

I'm planning a week-long trip to Maine at the end of Aug. One of my main goals is to hike up Mt. Katahdin.

I have an e-510 with the 2 kit lenses plus 70-300 mm and newly acquired 9-18mm.

I'm definately going to have the 9-18 with me during the climb, but wondering whether the 70-300 is too much (considering other stuff to bring, such as water, food, extra clothes, etc). On the other hand, I'm afraid that I'd miss a good chance when I run into a moose.

I'm also in need for other advises, such as weather conditions in late Aug and what type of clothes to bring, etc. Im planning to pack a rain jacket and a fleece. Is that too much, or too less?

Thanks!
