August 21 – Crossing the Kennebec

The kids all cruised ten miles in a little under four hours to make it in time for the morning ferry across the Kennebec. The ATC runs a canoe ferry for two hours in the morning and two in the afternoon because the hydroelectric dam releases upstream make the river unsafe to ford. The Kennebec flows right by our house, so it was yet another reminder of how close we are to home.

Our reward for making the morning shuttle was a big lunch at northern outdoors (including beer for the adults and root beer for the kids) followed by a soak in their hottub and a swim in their pool before getting back on the trail for a few more miles in the afternoon.
