Paddling 1:00:00 
Amber, Iris and I headed out to a campsite in the Algonquin Highlands Water Trails for the weekend. I'd never been in there before so wasn't sure what to expect. We started from the Little Hawk Lake access point and enjoyed a relatively calm paddle across the lake to a 950m portage where we learned how the bad the bugs could get this weekend! Iris was the only one appropriately dressed for the portage, covering every possible inch of exposed skin. Amber and I learned by Monday!
Under normal conditions, this would be a lovely portage, relatively flat and well used. With the bugs it was a bit of a get through it as quickly as you can sufferfest! Once we made our three trips through Mosquito alley, we had a short paddle across Cat Lake to our lovely, large, three level campsite at the end of a point. We were there in time to set up before happy hour and had a lovely evening and fire.
