Beginning at 4:00am July 24 Thoreau, Edward Hoar and Indian guide Joe Polis launched their canoe.
Their first stop was at Moose Island for breakfast.

Keeping close to shore they saw the dam at east outlet and continued to Sand Bar Island. They then portaged to Sand Bar Point.

Camp was made at the base of Kineo. They climbed the mountain along the knife edge. Camp was broken on the 25 for the long paddle to northeast carry.
They had lunch and proceeded to carry across to the Penobscot River where they continued their journey to Katahdin.
