Description

Allagash travelers Henry Withee and Horace Bailey stop at "Camp Mosquito" on their Allagash canoe journey.

Withee wrote in a journal, "Until that night, I never fully realized the power of the mosquito. They came in swarms and, in spite of netting and dope, sunk their artesian wells through the blanket, a flannel shirt and a woolen undershirt and took their bloody fill."
