    climb Megunticook

    Does "climb Megunticook" mean "climb a hill called megunticook"?

    In addition, why did the girl want to run early at dawn?

    Context:

    "You awake in wonder, you awake
    at half past four,
    Wondering what wonder is in store.
    You reach for your clothes in the
    dark and pull them on,
    You have no time
    Even to wash your face, you have
    to climb Megunticook.
    You run through the sleeping town;
    you do not arouse
    Even a dog, you are so young and
    so light on your feet.
    What a way to live, what a way...
    No breakfast, not even hungry. An
    apple, though,
    In the pocket.
    And the only people you meet are
    store-windows.

    Yes, it appears that Megunticook is a mountain/hill:

    I'm not a teacher, so please consider any advice I give in that context.
