Not a hike, but a good way to spend a non-hiking rest day.
We did a 7.2 mile canoe trip down the Saco River.
Glen paddled, and my job was to keep the dogs in the canoe as much as possible!
There are tons of canoe & kayak rental places in the North Conway area.
They drop you off at a spot based on the mileage you want to do, and you paddle downstream back to their livery.
I decided I like the seated position of a kayak better - my back hurt for a couple of days after this trip.
|The canoe was heavy! We had to drag it a way to the river.|
We didn't pack water shoes. That was a mistake!
|Let's get this adventure started!|
|Glen had to do 90% of the paddling|
|Moxie as very comfortable in the canoe. She had a blast. |
She was really interested in watching all the other paddlers & swimmers & tubers.
|Trek sat in front with me. Love this dog!|
|Moxie looking dorky.|
|One of the campgrounds on the river was having a rubber ducky race.|
|We took pity on the dogs, and stopped for a swim break.|
Not like they didn't jump out of the canoe to swim before this. The river is very shallow, so very tempting to jump overboard!
|The dogs joined us for dinner at A Taste of Life, a new vegan restaurant in North Conway.|
|We went for a drive in the evening looking for moose. We ended up seeing 5 foxes, including this one, who crossed the street when we pulled over, and came practically up to Glen's window. My guess is fed by humans one to many times?|
