Trip Introduction:
Spent 42 days on the water canoeing to the Nunavut border starting on Wollaston Lake in Northern Saskatchewan and the Cochrane River before paddling into Northern Manitoba via the Thlewiaza River and finally up to the Putahow River. Original plan was to reach the tree line at Nueltin Lake but weather and tougher than expected rapids with lack of portages cut time short. This has already been posted in the solo forum but someone suggested I put it here as well.
