Custom Maine Family canoe trip with the Maxcy family on the Allagash River. A quality time  without the every day distractions experienced back home. Instead of cell phones ringing….loons cried! No motorized sounds, just the sucking sound of paddles working up swirls of water with each stroke. The crackling of the fire signaled a hot drink or meal being cooked. The sound of this wilderness place was refreshing.
