Some friends of mine from school were having an ugly-sweater christmas party this past weekend, and it's been a while since I've seen them so I decided to make a quick run up to Maine. I left around 10:30 Saturday morning and was back in CT by 10 Sunday evening. Over 16 hours of driving, but the 18 hours I spent with my friends were well worth it. Sunday morning we went for a short hike (as I think Maine is one of the best places I know to hike) and we were lucky enough to have the sun come out for almost the entire time we hiked. It made for a long weekend, but I loved every minute of it.
