Canyon Livin

July 25, 2011  •  Leave a Comment


Panning for Gold is not the only recreation to be found in Byron, Maine.
Coo's Canyon in Byron, Maine is a great family fun place to explore for all ages.

As a young girl my grandmother brought me there and taught me how to pan for gold using old metal pie pans. That was over 30 years ago. Today people still enjoy panning for gold on the Swift River. If your not all that familiar with how and where...Just stop at the Coo's Canyon Gift Shop across from the Canyon they offer free lessons, supplies and great advise on where to look for treasures.

Not into panning for gold? That's okay the Canyon is wonderful for swimming and many areas are perfect water wading. On hot days the water is like a warm bath. Relax and let the water drift over you massaging your tired body.



Kids love playing in the water. Hours pass like minutes while they hunt for rocks or spend the afternoon catching minnows. Today we did both, hauling back tons of rocks to make balancing rock lamps and found out that T-shirts make super minnow catchers.



If all else fails, enjoy the beautiful waterfalls. Coo's Canyon is a little piece of Heaven located on Rt 17 in Byron, Maine. Relax and enjoy. For more views of Coo's Canyon visit my website gallery.
