Round Pond and Allagash Lake with a trip up Allagash Mountain
Tim B. says “I Am a Canoeist” - “I am a canoeist.
I bring you news and beaver plews from the land that is Beyond
where one can follow their dreams on the morning steams
like Thoreau on his journey through the ponds.
I’ve laid many fires and portaged deep mires
and patiently made my way.
I’ve dined on Moose and Beaver tail
beside the shimmering stream.
I’ve camped and hiked and broken trail
whilst under the moonlights gleam.
My paddle danced as I entranced took in the beautiful scene
No soul in sight just the awesome might of the Wildness before me.
Where late at night near the height
of some long forgotten portage
you can hear the cry of the voyageur - Huzza Huzza Pour Le Pays Sauvage!!!”
Not Just a Pastime, it’s a Heritage.
Would you like to be part of this effort? Send a photo of yourself canoeing with a short entry as to why you are a canoeist to me - firstname.lastname@example.org - I’ll work to brand as many entries as I can, with the saying “I Am a Canoeist”, and posting them on our facebook/tumblr/twitter feeds. This is a joint effort between us at Sanborn and you out in the field to share why we love canoeing with the world!
