Grey Brook on Long Lake to Squirrel Pocket on Round Pond was the perfect leisurely paddle. Having extra days to make the trip provides a calm as quiet as the lakes surface. At the Long Lake Dam portage we passed the only other party we would see; "ourselves in 20 years." Two older men, one with action pants the other rolled khakis. They moved at a pace that only retirement could afford. We were envious. We ushered passed them with the relish of youth on our dogs. We had the river to ourselves.
