Quick 2 day trip (wish i had 3). Very nice paddle, 4 portages and 6 dam carry overs. As the sign stated it indeed took the whole 6 hours one way,for us anyways. Beautiful wetland scenery finishing on a beautiful lake. Last portage around Francis falls is the longest at 430 paces, uphill over rocks than down into a boggy area. The other 3 are short at around 100 or so paces. Once into Francis it was i'm guessing about another 2 km to a campsite. Nice site with a fire pit and truly an endless supply on firewood laying around. Had a beaver there tail slapping what seemed every hour all night not happy with our presence. In all great little trip. Wind is a bit of a challenge at times as it seems to funnel through there making ya work for a few km.

I want to post about this trip as there is really nothing on line i could find. I will for sure take my wife in to the first portage (45 min paddle) for a nice lunch this summer when it greens up a lot more.

I hope this helps others and recommend this trip to anybody who like myself have been off the paddle for quite a few years.

Cheers.... :thumbup:

Find an application that will do bulk resize, Irfanview works best in Windows. Phatch is quirky but works in Linux. Resize all photos to be uploaded to a width of 800 pixels (keep aspect ratio though). Upload to a repository like Photobucket then copy the image location. In Photobucket, use the "Flash" links to the right of the photo to get the "Direct" image address.

To embed in a post, type ['img']photo address['/img'] with apostrophes removed. When I put this Photobucket link -
