    Ruth loved to paddle at Martin Meadow Pond in Lancaster, NH. She would paddle there several times a week during the summer and fall and enjoyed seeing the loons and eagles that lived there. She was also involved with her son's and daughter-in-law's (Mike and Lori Innes) paddling trips, ever volunteering to shuttle them from river to river or lake to lake. She would meet them in different sections of the NFCT (Northern Forest Canoe Trail) and she paddled many sections as well while waiting for them. Some of Ruth's other favorite paddling spots included Lake Umbagog, the Rangeley Lakes area, and Moosehead Lake.
