Welcome to Canadian Canoe Routes
Last Edited Oct. 21, 2013
Welcome to Canadian Canoe Routes (CCR) website!!
Inside, you'll find hundreds of route descriptions, trip reports, gear information and reviews, recipes, tips, tricks and techniques and active discussion forums. In addition there is a wealth of Route Resource Information. All of Canada is included & selected areas of the US.
And of course, the heart & soul of CCR is its members - a large community of paddlers from across the country & even quite a few from other countries - in particular, our neighbour to the south, the US!
We would like to gratefully acknowledge the generous financial
support of Mountain Equipment Coop.

. "It was early morning ~6 am (the EXIF data is wrong in case you check), the sun was just rising and there was still mist coming off the water. I took a series of 5 photos varying the exposure for each slightly and combined the photos giving the result you see here. Here is a larger version of the photo: http://wwccphotos.smugmug.com/Canoeing2 ... 1991009716
|And here is Smokey's photo with 19 votes. This was " Taken late evening on Evelyn Lake in the Chiniguichi area in June on a solo trip. Was sitting on the bank of the lake reading and happened to glance to my right and liked the play of light on the pines and grasses. Taken with Canon Powershot SX120 and no post photo processing.
