I saw a Great Horned several years ago on the Rock Pond outlet while going up from Little Tupper. They are formidable! I'd hate to try banding one (re other post) -- I've heard that the talons are...

I saw one while entering Avalanche Pass, a few years ago. Like yours, it didn't seem alarmed at all, but stared curiously at me and another couple who went by. I think they're not seen more...

I guess it's a matter of preference. I'd rather wear comfortable paddling shoes & get wet, than be burdened with a pair of high rubber boots. Certainly on camping trips, but actually any time. I...

I carry the Hornbeck over one shoulder. I use the bailing sponge as a shoulder pad. I do a double carry, since I'm prone to foot problems otherwise. On day trips, often just the canoe one time & the...

Sounds to me like some of the old corduroy, which I noticed both times I was up there - mostly in the first part before starting up the mt itself. I believe there was an old road through the pass...
