Abstract

Feature article about canoeing the Penobscot River's West Branch. Once an active log-driving river, in its heyday, the West Branch moved 1.7 million logs a year, each more than 70 feet long. Many didn't make it all the way, and even today some still stick up here and there along the length of the river. Giant steel boom rings still hang from trees and rocks. With details about the West Branch Project, which will one day protect some 330,000 acres along the river. Also with tips for those planning to canoe the West Branch, and contact information for outfits that offer West Branch trips.
