Day 2: Seventh Lake lean-to to Tioga Point State Park on Raquette Lake (11.7 miles)

Today in photos, as I remembered to take some!  Today featured two portages, the first an easy mile through a campground and the second longer and more difficult, to lovely Brown’s Tract Inlet. Lovin’ my bug jacket from Nancy and Arne Aho!  Although bugs have overall not been bad.  It was a world of beaver lodges and dams, butterflies, and blue flag.  Only one dam to carry over (below), as water was high.

Still a bit behind schedule and tired of wakes and waves, we found lean-to #6 at Tioga Point.  Ranger Autumn was very organized and helpful to two tired paddlers.  Soon, up paddles NFCT through paddler John Mautner of Fair Haven, NJ, (with me below), also headed to Fort Kent!  We gathered for dinner and plans by the campfire.  Wonder if I will catch him again?  Hope so.  TOTAL SO FAR: 26.4 miles
