Rob & Greg's Paddling Trip - July 2009 ... Greg McGuire's trip-log of their five days out of the Cache Lake access point.

"We landed at the 450m portage into Rod & Gun Lake (Devils Staircase). It was a steep landing and that was out first clue as to the trail itself. As we started out, and did the first switchback, I started to get all cocky .. thinking that was the total elevation change. Man was I tricked. This portage just kept going up and up, and up."

Greg & Melissa's Trip - August 2009 ... Greg McGuire's trip-log of their three days out of Rain Lake.

"It was very special, as this was a dream come true for Melissa to see a moose in the wild, not on the side of the highway, in the water feeding on the plants. To be able to see it from the canoe, and be all alone watching her was fantastic. We kept enough distance not to scare her. She knew we were there, and every once in a while she would look over at us and make sure we weren't doing anything stupid, and then she would go back to feeding. We loved it and took it all in."

Patrick S. has posted a trip-log on his new blog ... Little Trout Lake - Algonquin Park August 2009 ... four days of exploration and relaxation.

"... we kept wondering if the moose would return again for an evening snack. They didn't disappoint, coming through our site this time to reach the lake. However, they didn't stay- just walked the water's edge and went back into the bush on the opposite side. The sound of them splashing gives you an idea how close to us they were. The little guy was so cute, looking back every now and then at us."

Darren Dare has posted his latest trip-log on his website ... Fall 2009 Trip Log ... four days of relaxation on Tim Lake.

"We hung around camp for the rest of the day and evening. I managed to get the telescope calibrated and up on the last night, but with the amount of stars visible in the sky, it was hard to located specific celestial objects in the clutter of stars. The Milky Way was brilliant on this night and it stretched from one horizon to another across the sky. Truly spectacular star viewing, even with the naked eye."
