  The "Loon"

What to Expect

A little Rain and a lot of Sun. Breath-taking Scenery and abundant Wildlife. Including (to name a few), White-tailed Deer, Moose, Black Bear, Coyote, Red Fox, Beaver, Canada Geese, Ducks of all kinds, Hawks and Owls, and Bald Eagles too. You'll experience "Great Fishing" and "New Friendships", hours of "Quiet Solitude" and "Moments of Heart-pounding Excitement".

We share with you, our knowledge of..........
* Paddling Skills (including the techniques of canoeing rapids)
* Some Observational Astronomy
* Tips on Nature Photography
* Animal, Bird, and Plant-life Identification.

So, come run an exciting rapid. Locate Jupiter and Venus or learn the names of the stars of the Big Dipper. Photograph a 1,000 pound Bull Moose or perhaps a very rare "Cardinal" flower. Climb a mountain or explore some ice caves. Catch a fresh Brook Trout for breakfast and sip hot coffee by a warm friendly campfire. Come, pitch your tent in a grove of whispering Red Pine, then drift off to sleep when the sun sets to the soft hoot of the Great Horned Owl, the eerie call of the Coyote, or the mournful wail of a Loon from some distant cove.

Special Note:  The 22 day Henry David Thoreau 1853 Memorial Expedition runs once per year. It crosses famous 40 mile-long Moosehead Lake and travels along a portion of the West Branch Penobscot river onto a section of the Allagash Wilderness Waterway Lake system and thence into the East Branch Penobscot watershed. This expedition exceeds 200 miles in length. Because of the lengths of both Moosehead and Chamberlain lakes, it is quite possible that high winds could slow progress along these portions of the route. There will be NO extra charge for any extra days required, however, you must be in a position to extend beyond the 22 days scheduled if conditions dictate. Due to the above normal difficulties encountered on this expedition, (portages, whitewater, weather, etc.), only participants at least 18 years of age, in excellent health, and in good physical shape will be allowed to join this expedition.
