Hear about a marvelous journey! Aaron and Sarah are modern day voyageurs who have settled in the midcoast partly because it is close to the mouth of the Penobscot River. Getting there took them several months, brought them over rocky rivers and great lakes, through the end of a hurricane, past quiet forests and bustling cities, and allowed them to meet many kind and interesting people on the way. The couple met in 2002 in Ely, Minnesota, when both were working as Outward Bound instructors. Last summer, they decided to move to Maine, away from Outward Bound and closer to Sarah’s family. They packed their food and gear into a canoe they called the MC and followed the water along the northern edges of the Great Lakes, across New York state, along the Northern Forest Canoe Trail, through Chesuncook Lake and down the Penobscot River to Belfast, Maine, a mere 2200 miles. Their adventures along the journey make up a marvelous story.
