We are back!

Great trip.
Wicked storm but not as bad as the recent one in La Verendrye with the Scouts

Met a MyCCR guy with a sweet skin-on-frame pack canoe - will start another thread.

Kayak worked great. Needs some mods but both teenagers used it well. A bit too small for the 14 year old but he still did well.

High Falls was awesome if incredibly busy.

8 year old got his first fish. And we realized he's been on 5 similar canoe trips to my wife's first time!

Pretty choppy coming out today - paddled in worse but it is a lot more nerve wracking with your entire family. Fortunately the teenagers have paddled in worse with Scouts so they were not phased in the least. Nor was my wife.

We got the first site on Stratton - here is a GPS track I took of our paddle to High Falls on day 2.

Will post with more details in the coming days.

Oh and how could I forgot - amongst my wife's first timers on this trip was nursing while paddling! More on that but I did get some video that I will post :-)

The ranger told me when checking our permits that all the sites on Stratton have a bear cable for hanging your food. We were wondering what the blue mark on the tree was for :-)

Here is a quick video
