Thoreau Island

On this spot 167 years ago, Henry David Thoreau paddled down the Penobscot River into the North Woods of Maine, and made camp here among the firs. "After proceeding a mile and three quarters below the mouth of the Lobster, we reached, about sundown, a small island at the head of what Joe called the Moosehorn Deadwater"..."in the twilight, we heard faintly, from far down the stream, what sounded like two strokes of a woodchopper's axe, echoing dully through the grim solitude" - Henry David Thoreau
