CentralMaine.com: Emily Turner glided a 16’ canoe she built herself softly into the small canoe portage in the South Channel of the Kennebec River on Tuesday (August 19) afternoon, close to the end of an eight-week, 500-mile trek along Maine’s wilderness rivers.

Turner, 26, of Vermont, paddled and long-poled her way in a loop from Lake Seboomook, north of Greenville, up the North Branch of the Penobscot River, down the St. John River, up the Allagash River, back into the West Branch of the Penobscot, down into Moosehead Lake and into the Kennebec River.
