  To mark the 150th anniversary of Henry David Thoreau's "The Maine Woods", a group of canoeist retraced the trip from Moosehead Lake to the Penobscot River.  About 45 people participated in the outing and 8 people reached the final goal.
  Moosehead Lake had 4 foot waves at the beginning and there are a large number of portages between the lakes and streams that are the route.
