Today's Travel: Portage - Kibbee Lake - Portage - Indian Point Lake - Portage
Ok, New day. Let's try this again...
We are in (drum roll please)...
It is a great day to start an adventure.
After a quick breakfast of oatmeal and some repacking (just in case the cart breaks - I want the food to be easily carried), we headed back to the start of the trail. With the canoe on the cart and our packs on our back we started off. 10 m... 50 m... 100 m... We're further than we were yesterday :)
2.4 km later.... After a slow and steady uphill trip with minimal cart issues (some swinging out of the supports that required frequent readjusting), we made it to the first body of water - Kibbee Lake.
Looking back down Kibbee Lake after our 2.4 km paddle. Now for a bite to eat and another portage.
I need a break.
To Indian Point Lake!
More mountains. And we're going to paddle right into them.
Mark took apart the canoe cart and we loaded up the canoe for our 6.8 km paddle.
What a beautiful day.
We arrived at our campsite (#10) with time to enjoy the view down Issac Lake West Arm. After using balsam fir pitch on lichen as a fire starter for our fire, a delicious dinner of Pad Thai and a nice relaxing evening, we curled up in our sleeping bag and drifted off to the sound of the barred owl hooting nearby.
