Last week we headed off into the Northwoods of Maine with our fully expanded Seedlight production crew. Our intention was to document the wise and gentle spirit of wilderness guide Ray Reitze in his element amidst the whispering pines, singing crickets and croaking frogs.

Half the crew departed on Sunday afternoon with canoes and kayaks in tow for the seven hour drive to darn near the Canadian boarder. The other half of us skidded onto Round Pond by float plane with enough film and photo cameras and audio gear to nearly sink the plane. Once reunited we strapped all onto our backs for a short portage and then a long paddle with the wind against us through a string of remote streams that eventually connected us to our final destination: Poland Pond.
