Greenstone area. Information.
Greenstone comprises the communities of Beardmore, Caramat, Geraldton, Jellicoe, Longlac, MacDiarmid and Nakina.
Rob Haslam has generously posted two Route libraries for the Greenstone area.
I have posted entries for most Routes at the first site
http://www.greenstone.ca/ResidentialLif ... outes.aspx
and for all presently available at the second
http://gchs.sgdsb.on.ca/gchs-outers
I have posted all of Haslam's Greenstone entries in this folder regardless of the drainage basin. The two Routes (Namewaminikan River and Steel River) draining into Lake Superior are posted also in that folder.
Summit Lake. This lake, which lies on Haslam's "Marshall Lake loop", drains into both Lake Superior (via the Ombabika River) and James Bay (via the Kapikotongwa, Little Current, Kenogami and Albany Rivers); hence the name.
