MISSION ACCOMPLISHED: THE NORTHERN FOREST CANOE TRAIL
NO WATER, NO PROBLEM...
Teton was dead set on completing the 740-mile water trail no matter the water levels. He naively looked to tackle the trail during the late, hot summer months - a decision he would later regret due to the unseasonably dry year. Even though he spent more time portaging his boat and gear through overgrown lumber roads and rock-ridden river beds, he eventually made it to his destination, Fort Kent, Maine. It became clear early on that this trip would take everything he had. From dried up rivers, countless beaver dams, relentless gravel bars, broken boats, and mangled feet, the NFCT threw everything it had at Teton. It pushed him to his limits, and challenged him everyday. After finding success he came out having learned more about himself than he ever imagined. READ ABOUT HIS JOURNEY HERE
