Paddle a string of islands in the lower Susquehanna River

WRIGHTSVILLE, Pa. — Summer was fading into autumn as I glided into a labyrinth of wooded and grassy islands and exposed necks of mud — the Conejohela Flats in the lower Susquehanna River. There may be no other place on the Susquehanna that surrounds you by so much nature and history as this compact string of islands, accessible only by boat just off the opposing shores of Lancaster and York counties in Pennsylvania. The Conejohela Flats also are in the middle of the Susquehanna National Heritage Area, one of 55 such sites across the U.S.
