Last summer, ten Winnebagans had a glorious eight days on the Allagash Wilderness Waterway in northern Maine, paddling 114 miles from Nob Creek all the way to the famous Pelletier’s campsite on the St. John’s River in St. Francis . Pictured above, from left: Ethan Ris, Bill Carter, Grace, Jim and Ann Astrove, Dylan Ris, Bennett Astrove, Aaron Nathan; back left: Eric and Corey Benson. Instead of taking the traditional start from the southern base of Chamberlain Lake, the trip put in on Johnson Pond, making its way to Allagash Lake. After a day of exploration, including the fire tower and ice caves, he trip headed down Allagash Stream to Little Allagash Falls on the way to the Tramway portage on the north end of Chamberlin. Stopping at classic campsites and water holes, the trip carried on in a very Winnebagan way, including a tremendous ride down Chase’s Carry. The group had a wonderful stop at Allagash Falls, frolicking in the water while taking in the sights and sounds. The trip ended with an amazing final day on both the Allagash and St. John’s Rivers, culminating with a moose dinner and a traditional final campfire as everyone on the trip reflected on the incredible days and nights on the famous waterway.
