Kevin has guided a couple trips on the East Branch of the Penobscot river through the newly formed Katahdin Woods and Water National Monument. This is one of Kevin’s favorite rivers in Maine with it’s beauty and challenges of the rapids and portages around spectacular waterfalls and drops. He also taught a weekend white water clinic on the Androscoggin River by Errol, New Hampshire in July.

Polly has guided a Women’s Canoe & Yoga weekend to Umbagog Lake with yoga instructor Christine Trefethen, a West Branch of the Penobscot River trip for the Nature Conservancy, a Women’s Canoe Trip and Native Plant study in the Grand Lake Stream area ending with a stay at Weatherby’s Sporting Camp and the Grand Lake Stream folk festival. Everyone had a good time and were always brought closer together by any challenging weather that came our way.

In August we did one of our Way of the Wabanaki trips and have one more this season September 14-17th with room for a few more people. These are very much authentic cultural trips with the Penobscot of Indian Island and the surrounding area.

Polly took her annual horseback riding holiday to the Bob Marshall wilderness area in Montana in July and as always fell in love with her horse, this time a large part Percheron part Pinto named Cisco. The outfitter, 7 Lazy P, did a great job tending to all of the clients and had a nice string of horses and pack mules.

We have had a couple nice mentions lately to help spread the word about Mahoosuc Guide Service from publication Roaming the Americas recommending our Way of the Wabanaki trips as one of the top 11 things to do in Maine and Katy Kelliher’s new book.

We are hosting another Wilderness First Aid course October 20-21st and an Open Recertification course October 20-22nd with Jon Tierney from Wilderness Medical Associates. Contact us to register.

Hope you are enjoying the end of summer and beginning of fall!

Polly, Kevin & all the doggies
