The outer islands of Maine are special rocky thresholds where the full force of the Atlantic makes first contact with firm land. Paddling the Maine Island Trail east of Schoodic requires special attention. The fog is more frequent, crossings are longer, exposure to wind and waves is greater, the currents are stronger, the tides are bigger, and the need for wise decisions is critical. You can seem to move around so easily, but when things go bad, they go bad really quickly, said one longtime guide to the area.
