Wooden Canoe at Twitchell Lake Adirondacks

In the Fall our Chapter One group of the Wooden Canoe Heritage Association (WCHA) meets up in the Adirondacks and we canoe on the lakes during the changing colors of Autumn. Here is a nice wooden canoe on Twitchell Lake near Big Moose and about halfway between Old Forge and Eagle Bay. The canoe has steam bent cedar ribs with cedar planking and stretched canvas. They are very quiet to paddle over the lake and you can come right up to a Loon before they know you are there. But be sure not to hassle or bother them as they are protected and beautiful.  This canoe is also set up to use oars.
