Did the Bog River Flow the end of Sept. Shortly after clearing the floating bog, we had a stiff headwind. We laughed, at least coming out we would have a tail wind. The day we were coming back, the weather pattern changed and we had an even worse head wind the whole way back to the floating bog. Tough paddling but a good time with great company none the less.

I love the enthusiasm of the gentleman in his videos. Having done Bog River to Lows Lake myself I can attest to the stunning beauty of the region.

I owe him a thanks for showing his woodgas stove in one of his other videos. It comes in really handy during winter for snowshoe hikes when you want a hot meal.
