Papa's cabin used to be 1/2 mile downstream on the right. I remember the walk vividly: once I walked up on a MOOSE!

Thanks for the visit Kev. Those moose are scary let me tell you. My daughter and I rented a canoe at Macks Inn and paddled up stream; that was till this huge moose came out of the undergrowth and waded out toward us. It got to about 40' away and paused for a drink. It scared the living crud out of my 12 year old and me a little too. Needless to say we paddled like mad and got out of there. Being English, we didn't know if they were dangerous or not.

I have to say, I loved the place and found paddling on the river a real buzz. So peaceful and such gorgeous countryside.

Cheers, Rob
