My son and I completed a very enjoyable 16 day adventure in WCPP back in July. We started and finished at Onnie and went as far as Haven and Mexican Hat to the west and Upper Hatchet and Embryo to the north.

My trip report is at http://www.explor8ion.com/canoe/woodland-caribou-2016.html and includes maps, video and tons of pics. Enjoy!

Vern, thanks for uploading a very readable account of your WCPP ramble.

The stunning and HDR-like photos make me want to put my canoe on top of the car and head out immediately. Whether you're heading out from Calgary or Toronto, it is a bit of a drive to Red Lake but the reward is some incredible paddling country. +1 for your positive review of Harlan and RLO - he has it all covered!

Now that your son has got a real taste of being off the grid in a canoe, may you enjoy more time and adventures together.

Thanks! And yes, I'm hoping he does more of these with me over the years. It's a great way to spend time together.

Thank for the report Vern. Nice to see some familar sites. I was wondering about the fire damage. Sure glad we can still start a trip at Onnie or Douglas and still enjoy Glen lake and points north. Yep Harlan is a great help and an ambassador for the park.

My best canoe tripping memories are the ones where my sons have joined me, starting from when they were 5 & 7 years old, with the most recent being this spring with my oldest who is now 27. These are special times with our sons. I hope you and Niko enjoy many more adventures together. Great trip report too. Thanks.
