Several times each summer our GGT paddling staff heads over to Maine to assist the MASR staff and volunteers – here’s Darron’s take on yesterday’s efforts:
Sue and I headed out to Range Pond in Maine to join the Maine Adaptive Sports & Recreation folks for some accessible paddling for persons with disabilities, and their stellar staff and volunteers. We saw a mature bald eagle, two fledglings in the nest, a loon and juvenile loon, painted turtles, cedar waxwings, and Sue gets birdwatcher award of the day for spotting what she is very confident is a Blackburnian Warbler – vivid orange splashing about in the trees.
The folks did really well, including some first timers. The weather held and was beautiful when we left to make it back for the Salomon Trail Running Series awards and potluck wrapup.
