Trip Introduction:
I just completed yet another YouTube slide show remake. This slide show, which was me and three other guys was taken in Sept/ Oct 2009. We entered at Seagull Lake and paddled through Alpine, Jasper and Ogishkemuncie to South Arm of Knife Lake. It was another great trip! The new version is now in 4K resolution. I have added maps, some video clips and in general, the images should look a lot better than the old version
