Sunday, August 07, 2016 We stayed at the VNO bunkhouse and had everything packed the night before. We were on the road by 5:30 and on the water by 7 and were the first ones out that morning from the EP which felt great. I was in the rear of the canoe for 97% of the trip and beside a couple detours into the vegetation at the beginning it was just like old times and we moved rather quickly with the 3 of us paddling and single portaging. We were to the Devils Cascade portage by 8:30 and after stopping at the top to take in the sights we moved along downstream toward Loon. One beaver dam to pull over and we were on Loon with a moderate west wind which whipped up some medium whitecaps but nothing serious until we hit the wakes of a couple boats before the Beatty portage.
We then headed across LLC to see the picto's which were faint but still very cool. What wasn't cool were a couple canoes parked at that very high cliff with someone, who after a lot of convincing, jumped off while we were looking at the picto's and came up gasping for air. His friends paddled/swam over quickly and seemed to have things under control so we got out of there before more stupidity ensued. We saw a couple more boats and made it into Snow Bay by 1pm. Tired from the trek, we setup camp and relaxed the rest of the day.
