In Jackman ME July 2012.
From Route 201, turn to Spruce Street to the Wood Pond boat ramp.

At the Wood Pond boat ramp in Jackman ME.

Just launched. For this trip, the plan is to paddle across the pond and back.

I landed on this beach. It is clear it is not terra nullus ("empty land") where I can plant my flag. :(

We landed and turned around.

Looking to my left before I re-launch.

We were on the water for just under two hours.
