Trip Introduction:
We entered at Cross Bay Lake and leisurely traveled through Ham, Snipe, Cross Bay Lake, Rib to Long Island Lake. Very easy pace, with much time for exploring, fishing and photography! We saw moose, trumpeter swans and even had a tame snow shoe hare at one camp site :-) The YouTube slide show reduces our 8-day trip down to 14 minutes.
