We Made a Video!
Updated: May 24, 2018
Last summer, when we were just getting started, we realized that we should get out there and capture some of the beauty of the Penobscot River.
Of course, it's hard to really show everything that makes it special. Did you know that the Penobscot River is the largest river in Maine and the second largest in New England (smaller only than the Connecticut River)? The watershed drains an area of 8,570 square miles with the West Branch of the river originating near Penobscot Lake on the Maine/Quebec border and the East Branch beginning at East Branch Pond near the headwaters of the Allagash River. The river flows seaward and empties into the Penobscot Bay.
The name “Penobscot” was likely derived from a Native American word meaning "rocky place," or "river of rocks." While the picture is certainly different now than it would have been then, or even 50 years ago, we wanted to capture what it's like right now. And using a drone, we were able to get some cool shots! We hope you enjoy!
