Description:

My leg is ever improving so this shall be the last of my rehabilitating a cripple trips. The goal is to head for Widgeon Lake on the north shore. There is a short description of the trail here:

This trip should provide a nice bit of variety. We first have to canoe for maybe an hour before we hike for maybe 4 hours up a relatively steep hill till we reach a beautiful lake, where we shall set camp. I am convinced that much swimming, eating/drinking, and generally enjoying the good company in the mountains can ensue at this point. If we are feeling adventurous we might think about trying to head up one of the peaks by the lake.

If you have never canoed before or never camped before I'm not that worried. I have the distinct impression that this trip might manage to become a bit of a beginner friendly intro to gongshowing given the logistics of getting canoes to a set place and such like, but given the ample time we shall have I'm not greatly worried by this prospect.

 

I'm also hopeful that the very same logistics shall put of the crowds so that maybe we can get much of the place to ourselves.

 

 

So come sign up, it’s going to be a blast!
