Great trip report - it sounds like this was the trip of a lifetime. Great weather, fantastic wildlife sitings, and lots of fun. The picture of the girl with the Northern in the canoe is priceless! Thanks for sharing!

Sounds like a great time. Glad that the teenagers enjoyed it also. My 9 year old daughter has been asking me for a couple years already when she gets to go. I told her hopefully next year. I can't wait to get another person hooked!

A nine/ten year old would do great on Ensign! The portage in- is short and day trip opps are abundant. Water on Ensign is extremely clear as well.
Good luck -

That was a fantastic family trip. They'll remember that the rest of their lives. That will be repeated with their kids I'm sure. Thanks for sharing with us.
