Upcoming Whitewater Canoe Trip

In June, the gang and I will paddle the East Branch of the Penobscot River in Maine. This waterway runs north to south, parallel and east of Baxter State Park -- a 200,000 acre park well known to me. We will paddle about 30 miles, portage a few sections, run some fun whitewater, and canoe the same trip done by Henry David Thoreau. I've explored a remote mountain tributary feeding this river. On the East Branch of the Penobscot, we should see lots of wildlife, ideally moose, deer, ducks, and eagles. Seeing a bear would be awesome. The fishing should be cool, too.
