10 Aug July 29, 2011 Trip w/ Jayson
Having rafted both the Penobscot and Kennebec, the excitement of the Penobscot surpasses our experience on the Kennebec. With first-time Penobscot rafters with us, we were mildly concerned that we may be biting off more than they could chew. NOT! Our guide was great – extra points for inviting multiple shots at the Nesowadnehunk Falls – perhaps we should have stopped after 2 successful maneuvers?! I though his coaching was good; raft chatter makes it as we had strangers in our raft at the start, but not at the end.
I read the glowing reports about the center at The Forks and it isn’t the brewery that makes our trip! The Penobscot Center is beautiful and fits the bill for us to sit, relax and watch the slides and video of the day!
Thank you! A great way to spend time as a family making Maine memories to talk about for years to come. More next summer? Hope so!
