I'm researching some possible route ideas, and I'm wondering what routes people have taken from Baker Lake to Queen Maud Gulf or Chantrey Inlet?

cold summer wind talks about going the other way from starting at the meadowbank. I do believe that a group from Manito-Wish did it. They started at Wollaston Lake. http://www.transarcticexpedition.com/thanks.html

... traveled approximately 1200 miles from Wollaston Lake to Chantrey Inlet and raised $50,000 for Camp Manito-Wish YMCA. www.borealispaddlingexpedition.

From Baker there are routes up the Thelon and then overland to the Meadowback and onwards to the Back River...

Less traveled would be up the Price River instead of the Thelon.

Longer option further up the Thelon to the big lakes and then North to the Back R.

I'm sure there are other possibilities....

Thanks! It seems the Borealis girls' website is no longer up. That's a bummer.

Cold summer wind?
