It’s been a long, hot, low-water summer full of challenges, and we’re finally back from the Wilderness Canoe Expedition Semester (WCES). Since mid-June we’ve spent seven weeks on the rivers of Maine and Quebec guiding. That’s a lot of rapids, carries, and meals cooked over the fire. Today we said farewell to our WCES crew, and now we’ve got a week to catch up with the world before starting the fall Wilderness Bushcraft Semester.
The past four weeks saw us on the Allagash and East Branch of the Penobscot, as well as hiking in Baxter State Park and the Katahdin Woods And Waters National Monument. It was an amazing time with a great group of people who came together as a team. We accomplished a lot, and had a ton of laughs along the way.
The photo above is of Allagash Falls. To get it I carried my boat around the falls, then poled up to the pool just below the falls.
I’ll be posting more media from the trip in the coming days, as well as getting some podcasts out as well.
It’s good to be back.

Good stuff Tim. I hope the water level came up on the Allagash for you. It was a least 2 feet low when I went through. A lot of lining and dragging on gravel bars made my wife super happy!
We did get a bit of rain but it was still low.
