Quetico region

Definition of the Quetico region
The Quetico region comprises Quetico Provincial Park plus an ill-defined area outside the park (including La Vérendrye PP and Pigeon River Provincial Park); for the moment, let us say that the latter includes the basin of the Rainy River plus whatever else makes sense.

Ed note:
Many reports quote portage distances in rods; for those unfamiliar with (dare I say) the Imperial system, 1 rod = 5 metres (to within 1%), about the length of a canoe.
