Typical cooking set-up
Day two- beautiful weather for a four-mile paddle.
Tom takes a well- deserved nap during a snack stop on shore.
Our homes away from home- snug- but waterproof.
Campsite R-18 at dusk
Rain covers the White Mountains in the distance- and our group later that day.
Campsite R-18- a great fishing hole as well.

Gwen, Blair and Bob ready for an excursion up the Rapid River.
Blair plays in the pool below the Class II and III rapids.
A scenic hike along the Rapid River.
The kayaking group in 'deep thought'.
Kate readies to 'otter in'- sliding down the rock into the lake.
Kate successfully lands in the water right-side-up (the only student to do so).
With a sick paddler missing the last day, Bob and Doug ready for a six-mile paddle in their new invention- the quad-kayak.
Bob and Doug pretend to be excited about the six-mile paddle...
Bald Eagle next at the north end of the lake- with both parents at home
Bob gets chummy with the Bald Eagles- this is the closest our group was allowed to get to the nest.
The only wild mammal seen on our entire trip- not including the black bear seen off of the interstate.
The group is packed up and ready to go on the morning of day 5
Blair helps us save room in the van by riding in her boat all the way back to campus...(kidding)
