Scouts Seek Adventure in Maine Woods
WESTFIELD -- Boy Scouts from Troop 73 ventured into the Maine North Woods in search of adventure and history as they retraced over 100 miles of the most remote part of Henry David Thoreau's 1857 journey.The inspiration for the trip was the unveiling of the Thoreau-Wabanaki Trail in 2007, commemorating the 150th anniversary of Thoreau's third and final journey into Maine's North Woods.In 1857 Henry David Thoreau traveled from Moosehead Lake to Indian Island near Old Town, Maine, on the Penobscot River. This was Thoreau's longest and most arduous expedition. Thoreau, along with friend Ed Hoar and Penobscot Indian guide Joe Polis, completed the canoe trip in twenty days, including eleven in the Maine North Woods. Rather than paddling Moosehead Lake, the largest lake in Maine, the scouts began their trek at Roll Dam on the West Branch of the Penobscot River, avoiding the two-mile Northeast Carry. Traveling down the West Branch the scouts visited Chesuncook Village as Thoreau did. They visited the community church where Thoreau worshipped and Ansel Smith's grave, a man who made his living by lodging and feeding the lumberers and at whose home Thoreau stayed in. The scouts also paid a visit to the "store" for homemade root beer floats. From Chesuncook the scouts made their way up to Umbazooksus Lake into the Allagash Wilderness Waterway via the infamous 1.6-mile "Mud Carry" which lived up to its name. The scouts explored both Chamberlain and Eagle Lake, the northern-most point of Thoreau's expeditions, and then returned to Chamberlain Lake via the abandoned tramway built in 1902 to transport timber from Eagle to Chamberlain Lake. Along the carry are two giant oil-burning steam locomotives, which traveled between Eagle and Umbazooksus Lake in the early 1900s, and now stand abandoned in the forest as reminders of Maine's logging history. From Chamberlain Lake the scouts paddled east to Round Pond, Telos Lake and Webster Lake, before descending class II white water on Webster Stream into Grand Lake Matagamon. Thoreau portaged around a dam at the outlet of the lake and finally paddled the length of the East Branch back to Indian Island. After traveling over 100 miles in ten days in the wilderness the scouts pulled out at the Grand Lake Matagamon Dam. Unprecedented rain had swollen the East Branch to over five times the normal flow and the scouts were unable to paddle it, as water levels raised significant safety concerns. Undaunted, the scouts climbed Mt. Katahdin, which Thoreau climbed on his first visit to Maine in 1846. Katahdin's summit is almost a mile above sea level at 5,268 ft. It is the highest mountain in Maine and the northern terminus of the Appalachian Trail. Called "Katahdin" by the Penobscot Indians, the term means "The Greatest Mountain." The scouts ended their trip with a wild day of rafting on the West Branch of the Penobscot River below Ripogenus Dam, a tough class IV-V river with chutes, drops and large holes that challenged the scouts in exciting rapids like Exterminator, Cribworks and the huge Nesowdnehunk Falls. Stop by and learn more about Troop 73, which meets in the Holy Trinity School cafeteria on Monday evenings beginning Sept. 8.
