Day 2 of 4
Tuesday, June 08, 2021.............Day two's mission was to link up with Team Two at Thomas Lake (somewhere!). Kicked off the day of paddling around 930am arriving Thomas Lake at 430pm. This trek paddled/hiked through eight portages with a total of 198 rods and seven lakes. ~Ashigan Lake, Gibson Lake, Cattyman Lake, Jordan Lake, Ima Lake, Hatchet Lake, Thomas Lake Day 2 had two scenic points worth stopping for: one was the Cattyman Falls on portage #477 and the rocky cliffs in the passageway between Jordan and Ima. By the way we jumped off of two cliffs into the water. One was a lot higher and created plenty of anxiety.

We finally arrived Thomas Lake and began making radio checks with Team Two and unfortunately for us we found them on the south side of the lake at campsite #1183
