It's wonderful you can take canoe trips with your family. Beautiful area too.

Great report and photos. I need to do a trip through that area. I hope the ducklings are still tripping with me when they are all grown up.

Thanks everybody. Yes , it is a beautiful area of the BW.
Ducks, I wish that for you too. Everybody is starting to venture off on their own way and it's a real treat to get together for these trips.

Nice report and pictures, cowdoc. It gets harder and harder to get a trip like that together as they grow up.

It does. I did all the planning, made all the phone calls, bought and packed all the food, and packed all the gear. But hey.....that's all part of the fun for me!

Awesome trip report as always! Your kids are lucky to have you! Sounds like you guys had a stellar trip! This area is on my top 10 list for trips to take!

I really enjoyed your report. I was in that area in August as well. We put in on Clearwater and made a beeline for Little Caribou. We were lucky to get the site and spent three great days there. We saw the same otter family and the beaver. I also thought it was odd that the water was so green.
