Your trip has me focused on the East Branch! So many rivers to enjoy. We have seen parts of the East branch (a couple of the lakes for fishing) but not the way you did. Thanks for this. It is time to plan to add this to our Maine river adventures.
We used to paddle with the St. Croix Canoe club. Tony Rieder and the Pottles, back in the 80s. Time to join the NB Paddlers again.
