As long as we're going far afield, why not Missouri Breaks in Montana?

The Sacco River is the antithesis of why I enjoy paddling but there's a reason it is so popular. It is a beautiful flatwater stretch from Conway with sandbars, if you can find an empty one, for swimming, lunch and party. There is the possibility of a shuttle back to your car so you can do a continuous end to end paddle.

Consider Chocorua Lake. Rt. 16 will remind you you're near civilization but the constant views of Mt. Chocorua will inspire a good hike.

Cooks Pond and River lead to Silver Lake ... more views of Chocorua.

Never been to Conway Lake but its on my "list" with put-ins at both ends.
