Man canoes from Fort Kent to Old Forge, NY

A man who traveled by canoe from Fort Kent to Old Forge, New York, has returned back to his home in Vermont. Peter MacFarlane makes hand crafted cedar canoes. Back in May, MacFarlane took one of his canoes and traveled through rivers and lakes starting from Fort Kent all the way down to New York. He said this isn't the first time he's traveled between the two towns, but says this trip posed a new difficulty. "Maine In particular, what I liked the most was some of the lakes," said MacFarlane. "Especially the Allagash headwater lakes, so Churchhill, Eagle, Chamberlin. They were absolutely gorgeous, mainly because I hit them in good weather. Five years ago, I hit them in lousy weather and they were less gorgeous, but they were absolutely wonderful and they were calm. So, deep water and calm conditions, it makes for ideal travel by canoe. If you asked me what I like less about it, it would be the head wind. I had some brutal head winds to fight against." McFarlane adds that the he loves the route he took because it allows him to see all of Maine's amazing rivers.
