Great Bay ExpectationsPick up a copy of this month's Canoe and Kayak magazine to read my feature on paddling New Hampshire's Great Bay. One of my favorite places in my home state, Great Bay has been a great conservation success story. Protected primarily as a National Estuary Preserve and National Wildlife Refuge, it is one of New England's largest primarily undeveloped estuaries. The New Hampshire Nature Conservancy continues to buy and protect upland parcels surrounding this aquatic gem. Numerous hiking trails grace the shoreline. But of course, the best way to experience this natural wonder, is to paddle it. Read my piece and plan a visit there sometime real soon!
