Fishing and hunting expeditions into Maine's north woods in the late 1800s required travel by boat, train, and horse drawn wagons to transport the gear to and from camp. Here we see the men adjusting the canoes and loads after passing the Great Carrying Place near Roach Pond and Ragged Lake in the Moosehead Lake Region.
