Nat Geo – Summer Expedition, Day 1

After a six-hour drive – which included a pit stop at LL Bean and Hannaford for supplies – we made it to Johnson’s Allagash Lodge for the very last expedition for my National Geographic Young Explorers grant.


The lodge is a collection of log buildings on the edge of Narrow Pond, which eventually drains into Allagash Lake. The cabins sit on a small hill, and from our porch I could peer through the trees and make out the reflection of the water. Bob Johnson, the owner, gave us a quick tour, saying proudly that, “This is a one-man operation!”
