Earlier in the month the whitewater trip leaders headed out on our training trip to the West Branch of the Penobscot.
Our first day up on the West Branch was a little gray (as was the drive up), but we ran through a bunch of lessons. The second day had the sun come out while we paddled down from Big Eddy through Horserace. Big Amberjackwockamus Falls distracted us on the way down.
That afternoon we got word that they were going to release water from the dam in addition to what was getting released from the station, so we headed up to Ripogenus dam to spectate. It turns of the gray (rain) was over most of the state, so the whole Penobscot watershed was a little full.
Our plan for our final paddling day was to head up to the Seboomook section, but we had no idea what it would be like at 6k cfs, so we decided to stay local and contemplate just what we would do with a trip at high water.
