This was Canoe the Wild’s 4th Allagash canoe trip this August. Beginning on Churchill Lake skipping the larger headwater lakes. We experienced rain, sun, thunder showers, listened to loons, watched an early morning moose feeding and viewed the night sky without light pollution!  We had first timers and Roy who did the trip 4 times (over 45 years ago) with the St. Croix Voyagers as a young teen. Back then he paddled the Allagash in a wood canvas canoe, slept in a canvas tent and nobody wore life jackets! Times sure have changed! St. Croix Voyager Groups would often get to the Allagash by paddling up Moosehead Lake from Greenville, portage into the West Branch of the Penobscot River via the Northeast Carry which is the route of the Northern Forest Canoe Trail, paddle up Umbazooksus Stream and portage gear and canoes via the Mud Pond Carry (1.7 mile) over to Mud Pond then into Chamberlain Lake. On some trips they paddled and dragged upstream to Coucmogomoc Lake on their way to Allagash Lake then down Allagash Stream to Chamberlain Lake. It was an all summer affair!
