a Journey on the Bog River
and the Oswegatchie
Brian Mann & David Sommerstein
Listen to story. (12:36)
One of the classic Adirondack canoe routes begins near Tupper Lake and
winds through the Five Ponds Wilderness toward Cranberry Lake. That
section of the north country offers some of the most remote forests and
rivers in the East. Two of our reporters, Brian Mann and David
Sommerstein, made the trip earlier this month.
