Loopers: Traversing the ‘Appalachian Trail on Water’

The Great Loop of the Eastern United States is like a safari or sea-­fari if you will. There are bears, manatees, bald eagles and mountain lions all while boaters cruise through 6,000 miles of waterways. They travel the Atlantic up to Canada then to inland waterways, down to the Gulf Coast and back to the Atlantic. Pamela D’Angelo met up with a pair of so­-called Loopers from Maine as they followed the route of Captain John Smith up the Rappahannock River.
