Trip Report/Photos
Featured Photo . . . it doesn't get much better. Kudos first to hosts don and Roger, who make sure there is enough food, drink, and activity to keep everybody happy. A great group of men -- including some newbies -- and three genial dogs swam every day, kayaked all of Upper and Lower Narrow Pond, tented, had much fireside conversation, and on general enjoyed all the reasons all of the East Coast comes to Maine for the summer. Gratitude to to the hosts and fine men who made it all happen.
