Back Country Canoe Trips, Part 9 – 2009

So here we are again, going back to Carcajou Bay off Grand Lake.  We like this area and no portages to get to our campsite.  So that’s a bonus.  Just a little paddle in site and we can even take more stuff, cause you can never have too much stuff !

Our campsite

Did lots of day trips this year.   I can’t remember them all but we did a lot of the usual.

Portage

Sometimes it is tricky, you head down a trail to the water and this is what you have to work with.   You have to put your canoe in at this spot and it’s not always easy.

We paddle in the oddest areas.  We paddled down this river through the marsh.  I use the term river loosely lol

One day we paddled over and then hiked into High Falls.  What a great time we had.  In the summer months, High Falls is crowded with people !  People hike in or canoe in and just have fun.
