Hello,

I'd like to share my trip report of the Poker Lakes Loop in Haliburton Highlands.

I find the "hum" in the forest as the black flies are coming out just amazing!
It is just so neat that a there is so many tiny insects (that want to eat you 8) can make such a noise.
Great report,
Loved your shelter.
(Take note anyone else heading out, any screened shelter is worth the weight in heavy bug season)
I am wondering if the deer was escaping the black flies, I have seen that before.

Beautiful pictures. Hum of bugs is fascinating but intimidating.
Thanks!

Yes, the hum is quite something!

Nicely done. :) Great report. :thumbup:

I used to paddle those lakes fairly often (once as early as Easter -1st week of April that year! ), but I'm a bass-hunter and those lovely lakes have been, sadly, over-fished in recent years, so I haven't been back there for quite a while. Still look so pretty, though!
