Good read! A real eye for the flora and fauna (per your screen name, I reckon).

I don't fish, which most folks find amazing, but I spend a lot of time exploring for interesting geological features, plant species and plant communities and bird watching.

Really enjoyed reading your report and pictures. I like the shorter travel days and exploring the lakes. Thanks for sharing you trip! Well done!

Thanks. My shorter travel days have come along with age(66) and have more to do with number and ruggedness of portages. Routes with lots of big water have me traveling further. I can paddle all day long and really should be spending more time on the big border lakes.

Oh, and do look into a bug net. I went down through Cross Bay Lake to the Frost River a few weeks before you and the mosquitos were aweful. Fortunately I had just made a bug net to hang under my tarp. If I did not have it, I honestly believe I would have gone home on day two instead of ten.
