A Canoe Ferry

Despite the rain all morning we made it to the canoe ferry across the Kennebec River on time. Instead of building a bridge the ATC employs a local outfitter to provide a ferry for a few hours every day during the main hiking season to help people cross the Kennebec. It is a large enough river that I’m not sure how you would cross otherwise. Swimming with a pack is a poor decision!

The terrain has remained flat enough since yesterday that we made good enough time to get our package at the PO, get picked up by a local Inn that takes in hikers, and enjoy an afternoon of rest before dinner time! We were glad to be inside this afternoon because it absolutely poured this afternoon. It was delightful to be looking at it from inside a dry place for once, though we felt for all the other hikers out there.

Did I mention we made it past the 2,000 mile mark? Less than 200 miles to go!
