wisabe: " We were not alone on our portage
A brood of about 15 Grouse joined us on our portage on Ensign Lake. Not a care in the world. They just clucked and stepped out of the way> "

Another trip down memory lane, this time from our fall canoe trip in 2004. On the end of the 50-rod portage from Allen to Horseshoe there was this big fallen tree. It was nearing the end of the trip so the food pack I was carrying was quite light. I made it over the log, even with my short legs--no problem. Spartan1 was following behind me with the much heavier tent pack. I heard the thump, I turned, and I laughed out loud! He was also laughing, but he said, "Surely you aren't going to take a picture of me like this?"

Wanna bet?
