Mom has her own wooden Old Town canoe and still paddles the grandchildren upstream an hour to see the old abandoned apple orchards that supplied the Apple Jack Mill during prohibition. When the mill burned down, a builder craftsman gathered the timbers and bricks and built the house I grew up in.

Have sherpas, will travel...
It's a clear shot on the RR tracks from Atsion to Batona Camp. You'll cross over two beautiful train trestles (Springers Brook & Batsto River) along the way. 012.jpg
