Some more pics from the canoe trip

Pouring rain set us looking for a campsite, nothing to be found, finally paddled up to Arthur Lake the spot where I figured would be a camp site was at the bridge and the road, the parking area was a lake.  Went on to Arthur Lake and found one that needed lots of clean up, still raining, put up the fly and hunkered in and finally had supper under the fly.  After dinner got the tents up and crawled into the bags.
Next day it started out grey but turned all right and paddled right up to Pigeon Lake where we found a great site on top of and island.  The first thing on the agenda get all the wet stuff out and hang it up.
We got there early so had a lot of time to get all the tents up and bags in for the night to come.
Here is the cook reading the directions on the bag of dehydrated food.  We all need a good meal and a dry spot to sit on to rest.
Lots of time to eat and rest and a good evening enjoying the camp fire after dinner. Set off the next day under good weather by the time we were down to the portage into Duncan lake it started to pour again.  Down Duncan and back to the vehicles and back to Gowganda to dry everything out again.  Great trip with Geoff and John (brothers) and as always Brian.
