After 35 years of backcountry camping together she still had the gumption to tell me “Don’t take my F***ing picture!”. Note the bug head gear. There still were clouds of black flies in late July.

The backcountry canoeists we met the day before said the Club Lake end of the portage was “a bit muddy”. A bit?!!! I was lucky to escape this quicksand! As I would later learn thanks to the abundant snow and rain this year most portage ends were “a bit muddy”, and very buggy.

This was at the 6km mark of a 7km trail run, or at the 6km and 13km if you were running two loops. I know it is not a flattering picture. But it shows how steep it was!

Waiting canoes. I bought another canoe because I needed one a foot longer (the blue one nearest) and because I travel light and because one can always use another canoe (what’s the emoticon for sarcasm?). Cannot wait for the summer!
