I went through the Big Moose end of the road for the first time last year and I didn't notice any rocks, but it was all soft beach sand. Cars went zipping along at 40 with no problem, but on my bike...

It sounds like a really tough trip for sure. I'm glad you made it out of the woods all right in the end. I have a theory (which may be incorrect) that the weight of carried objects is relative to...

Yardsale, I'm sorry, I don't know about the holes in the tree, I have seen some odd holes at times and wondered what caused them. In my experience woodpecker holes can be quite regularly spaced and...

Thank you for posting the photo essay. The pictures are beautiful. I've been thinking of going to Lila and Lows next summer for my trip, and this makes it even more appealing.

I don't go out in cold weather, but for general summer use I find a poncho works well on the bike or on foot, and even fairly well in the canoe. On my first several trips when I was biking and...

That's a great sighting, but too bad about the low water levels. It always surprises me that deer can swim, given that they don't have much fat and their legs are so thin and pointy, but I guess...

Who does SAR for missing threads? Do they use string and flagging like human SAR workers? Do they crawl through electronic swamps and and spruce thickets?
What is the world coming to?

Creekwader, that's interesting that you got the oysters on a tree by the garden, ours are usually in shadier places. We only inoculated the oysters once, after that we have just gotten wild ones,...

Thank you all very much. Creekwader, you may be right about the identification, taxonomy is not my strong point by any means. We inoculated some aspen logs with oyster mushroom spawn around 12 or...

It sounds like a great trip. I can't seem to get into the album, probably because I'm not registered with Facebook. I hiked through that area in 2013 and visited most of the lakes, but it must be...

It's deja vu all over again: Indian Lake by bicycle with canoe 8/22-8/28

Some things don't seem to change, and one is that I always write more than I meant to in my trip reports. Here is a link to some pictures which tell the story in a less verbose fashion.

I'm sorry, I should have been more specific. You're right, I meant the Cascade Lake near the hamlet of Eagle Bay, in the Pigeon Lake Wilderness Area. I've never set foot in the EHP, though I'm sure...

I have an old nylon stuff sack, but it's getting pretty worn out. I've used it for 10 years now and it was far from new when I started. I use a 50' piece of camo colored paracord with a metal jar...
